Lesson Plans & WebQuests: the process

Teaching Tips Includes Lesson Planning for effective teaching: how to from a Faculty Development Document at the University of Hawaii

WebQuest Matrix: a resource for those who are using the WebQuest model to teach with the web. "A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented activity in which most or all of the information used by learners is drawn from the Web. WebQuests are designed to use learners' time well, to focus on using information rather than looking for it, and to support learners' thinking at the levels of analysis, synthesis and evaluation."

Building Blocks of a WebQuest: "Putting a WebQuest together is not much different from creating any kind of lesson. It requires getting your learners oriented, giving them an interesting and doable task, giving them the resources they need and guidance to complete the task, telling them how they'll be evaluated, and then summarizing and extending the lesson."

WebQuest Lesson Plan Templates: from the Teachers Academy for Mathematics and Science.

 AskAsia Lesson Plans
"Learn to fold an origami swan. Uncover the reason Koreans leave uneaten food on their dinner plates. Read the Chinese "Brocaded Slipper" tale, the first version of Cinderella that dates to 863 C.E. Discover how the Japanese word besu-boru was born from the American word "baseball." Suitable for K-12 Asian studies curricula, the materials and guidance available here can foster an appreciation of Asian culture. AskAsia makes teaching and learning about Asia -- from culture to politics, from history to religion -- as easy as NIKO NIKO (that's Japanese for smiling happily). Developed by The Asia Society in cooperation with several partners, AskAsia offers high-quality, carefully selected resources to steer both the novice and the veteran."
