When I taught the short story "Three Skeleton Key," by George G Toudouze, I used this Webquest as an anticipatory set. Students enjoyed searching for the information and identifying with the story (by viewing and interacting with the Prezi presentations).
Some key concepts for this assignment are: SETTING, CONTEXT CLUES, COMPARING AND CONTRASTING, and WRITING COMPLETE SENTENCES.
TIP: In getting students to the proper websites, I linked the URLs on my Teacher Webpage/Class Wiki. That way, students didn't mistype the URL address in their browsers. It's very easy to do, and it saves a lot of time!
