Product Description

Webquests are great for letting students work independently or cooperatively through a variety of media materials to engage in activities that aim to build background knowledge over a certain topic before beginning a new unit.

But often times, students can be less than authentically engaged, simply going through the motions. This lesson aims to encourage authentic investigation into Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men by putting students in charge of their learning - THEY create the webquest, becoming an expert on one aspect of the necessary background knowledge surrounding the author, time period, and novelette.

After all sections have been created by the students, they are then pieced together for the class to complete holistically. Often times, I turn this into a competition, offering extra credit to the students who produce the work that makes "the final cut".
