|According to Bernie Dodge, A WebQuest must include
the following elements:
introduction that sets the stage and
provides some background information, often involving
a hypothetical role or scenario
(e.g., "You are a detective trying to identify the mysterious
poet." The purpose of this section is to prepare and
hook the reader. The student is the intended audience.
(=quest) that is doable and interesting--the culminating
performance or product that drives all of the learning activities.
This could be
problem or mystery to be solved;
position to be formulated and defended;
product to be designed;
complexity to be analyzed;
personal insight to be articulated;
summary to be created;
persuasive message or journalistic account to be crafted;
a creative work, or
anything that requires the learners to process and transform the
information they've gathered.
