My Topic

The first decision you'll make in creating your WebQuest is that of your topic.

A good topic is one that fits these four criteria:

  1. It is clearly tied to the curriculum standards that govern your classroom.
  2. It's content you've taught before and have not been satisfied by the outcome.
  3. It makes good (though not necessarily exclusive) use of the Web, and could not be taught as well without the Web.
  4. It requires a level of understanding that goes beyond mere comprehension.

Once you've identified a topic for which all four criteria are met, use this space as a way to begin to nail down the boundaries of your topic. This page will not be seen by students or by other teachers. It's primarily here for your own use and as a way to communicate with peers and mentors who are helping you to give birth to your WebQuest.
