A WebQuest is a fantastic way to integrate technology into the classroom and to individualize learning. This particular WebQuest takes the student on an online journey through an article, a pamphlet from German elementary schools, a video clip from the movie Freedom Writers, a picture series of Kristallnacht, and testimonies from Holocaust survivors. At the end, there is a one-page reflection essay where students take into account two quotes and write about what they've learned.
I've found that students respond well to this assignment and I've had some incredible reflections written by students. Because this is individualized, students write at their own level. Some students will write surface-level observations, and some will go into deep introspection. I hope you find success with this WebQuest!
