Put Your Title Here


Write a short paragraph here to introduce the webquest to the students. If there is a role or scenario involved (e.g., "You are a detective trying to identify the mysterious poet.") then here is where you'll set the stage. If there's no motivational intro like that, use this section to provide a short advance organizer or overview.

The Task

Describe crisply and clearly what the end result of the learners' activities will be. The task could be a:

WebQuest Taskonomy Cluster - click on the various sections in this image for a detailed look at the type of tasks which can be carried out in a webquest. This terrific set of clickable image maps was created by Mary Vieira of San Diego City Schools to show the important characteristics of each type of webquest task.


Use this space to point out places on the internet that will be available for the learners to use to accomplish the task. Embed the links within a description of each resource so that your learners know in advance what they're clicking on.

Our Lady of Peace School has a web page designed for the student, teacher, and parent. (This is just an example sentence with a link embedded within it.)

The Process

To accomplish the task, what steps should the learners go through? This section is the main focus of the quest. Make sure that the steps are clear and precise.

  1. This is step one.
  2. This is the second step.
  3. ... and so on.

Learning Advice

Here you would provide some guidance on how to organize the information gathered. This advice could include suggestions to use flowcharts, summary tables, concept maps, or other organizing structures. The advice could also take the form of a checklist of questions to analyze the information with, or things to notice or think about.

It's possible that the learning advice would flow best if merged in with the process description. If you're providing a lot of advice, or if the data gathering and analysis process has more than a few steps, it might be best to break Learning Advice out to a separate section.


Create a rubric to show students how they will be evaluated. In addition, you can create a self evaluation sheet with which students can evaluate their own learning.


Put a couple of sentences here that summarize what students will have accomplished or learned by completing this webquest.
