COURSE DESCRIPTION

WebQuests are meaningful web-based activities designed to challenge the learner's problem-solving and higher-order thinking skills.  WebQuests have become popular with teachers because they help them integrate the Internet into the curriculum through a 6-step model that has been field tested and proved successful through a wide range of grade levels and subjects.  An effective WebQuest should be on a web site with the appropriate "live links" that are an integral part of WebQuests.  Consequently, participants will create a WebQuest for the classroom while learning web page construction with Frontpage. Final WebQuests will be put on a web site for use by future students.
