Outline for WebQuest
Shared by: katiebelonga
Outline for WebQuest By: Faye Umble Topic: The Underground Railroad Content: Throughout the WebQuest, my students will read and address content related to these questions: What was the Underground Railroad? Who was involved? How did it work? What did slaves have to do to reach the North? What did they have to watch for/be careful of? Who helped them? Process: Deducing – Students will go over information relating to the Underground Railroad and will infer generalizations and consequences related to slaves running from the South to the North. Analyze Errors – Students will look at themselves and their knowledge of the subject in order to better understand their own thinking. Construct Support – Students will be creating projects in which they will need to gather information and support for their topic relating to the underground railroad. Analyze Perspectives – Students will look at slavery and though the eyes of the slaves in the South and will gain insight into the processes taken in their escape from the South to the North. Multimedia – It is my intention to find primary sources written by slaves during this time. I will also incorporate videos about the Underground Railroad as well as sound clips from either slaves or historians who have studied this period in history. I hope to create a WebQuest that incorporates all forms of multimedia and is also creative and interesting.
