Using WebQuests in the Social Studies Classroom by Margaret M. Thombs

Book Description

This book provides practical strategies for using WebQuests in the secondary social studies classroom. WebQuests are inquiry-oriented, collaborative student activities that focus on using web-based information to enhance higher-level analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. The authors show how classroom teachers can optimize learning, enhance student inquiry, and promote greater intercultural understanding by infusing this simple, yet powerful, model into their daily classroom instruction. This comprehensive resource provides guidelines, tips, and step-by-step instructions for teachers who want to develop a variety of WebQuests for use during the school year.
