 Project Web Quest

    The webquest will be your first six week’s project. The
   assignment contains three separate assignments and will
   comprise a MAJOR part of your first six week’s average.

 You will have some class time in the library, but you will be
required to complete all the requirements on your own time.

You will submit all parts in a folder on Tuesday, September 22nd. If
you are in my Monday/Wednesday class, you will submit all parts in a
folder on Monday, September 21st.
• The web quest as a whole will utilize multiple skills on your part.
• Part 1 requires you to research online for a modern example of
  someone who has been falsely accused or claims to be falsely
  accused. Once you have researched 5 sites, you will write a news
  article detailing your modern example. (TEST GRADE)
• The 2nd part will be a dialectical journal that you create from 10
  quotes of your choosing. You will analyze the quotes in a template
  form. (Test Grade)

  5 symbols and connect them to The Crucible with a caption. (Daily
• As with any written assignment in English III, you will be required
  to use proper English and correct grammar and punctuation
• All written work must be typed. If you do not have a computer at
  home, you need to utilize the class time provided, as well as to make
  arrangements to work in the library or my room during tutorials or
  after school.

  two class periods.

  September 16th and Thursday, September
          Part One Directions

  who has been “falsely” accused. Think of someone
  who has been in the news since 1970. Watch this
  Falsely Accused PPT before you do your research.

  accused person!

  accused or someone who believes THEY have been
  falsely accused regardless of what society thinks.

• You must include a Works Cited with at least 5
  sites that you used to research your person! If you
  do not remember how to do a Works Cited,
  research it HERE.

• When you have completed your research, you will
  write a news article about your person.
• You should include a title, a picture (image) of
  your person, and then your FOUR PARAGRAPH
  written article describing your person, their
  accusation and finally if a resolution has been
  found or not.
• Finally, comment if you believe the person is/was
  innocent or not!
• You need to write the article yourself. DO NOT
  attempt to copy an article from online and submit
  it as your own work.
           Part One Format

  situation end? (jail, fine, release, etc.)

  Quotes Page.

  for you. Your answers must be TYPED into
  the template and then printed.

          Part Two Directions

  in addition to your response.

  response for each quote.
• Questions that must be answered are:

    relation to the play?
• Once all 10 quotes have been analyzed, you will
  print out the journal.
