Product Description
"The Dakota Access pipeline is one of the most hotly debated topics of this generation."

This WebQuest is a 42-question document that utilizes several websites to answer questions regarding the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline. While it is very difficult to gather unbiased information, I strive to present both sides to my students and allow them to come up with their own opinions on the matter. The will see this issue from the perspectives of the Standing Rock Sioux Indians and also understand what the supporters have to gain.

The end goal of this assignment is for my students to be able to hold their own in the impending class debate, but this can certainly be used as a standalone assignment that students can do independently or in groups. It can even be left to be completed while a substitute is in the room, provided students have access to the internet.

Questions in this assignment range from lower-level questions that can be found directly from the websites to higher-level, opinion generating questions to help students make connections in the material. There is also an interdisciplinary math section to put real numbers into the facts and figures presented. For example, one website gives the dimensions of the proposed pipeline and students are asked to calculate the volume of the pipe (all equations are given). As an editable word document, you can change the amount of material given to each of your classes to provide differentiated instruction as needed.

Answer key is provided for ease of grading.
