These are the steps that you should follow as you complete
your WebQuest. Please try to follow these steps as closely as possible
as you will be graded according to the completeness and accuracy of your
projects. If you would specifically like to see how these projects will
be graded, please visit the evaluation page.
Meet with the other members of your group. Come up with a
plan to research each of the energy options. It would probably be best
for you to assign one energy option to each member of the group.
Once you have decided what you are going to research, begin
investigating the resources that are given to you. I recommend the following:
Prepare an option paper that lists the general information
about the energy option you have researched. Also, the option paper should
include the pros and cons of the option.
Collaborate with your group. All members of the group should
share what they have learned about the energy options. Decide on which
energy option is best for the town.
Prepare a group presentation that should cover the following:
investigate the internet resources for your topic
skim the internet resources for the other energy options
check out the search engines to see if there is any additional
information that is relevant to your topic.
research the non-web related resources.
Your presentation should be 3:00 in length. All members of
the group should participate. The presentation should be visually stimulating
to the other class members. This means that overheads, posters, or other
audio/visual techniques should be utilized.
When complete, be sure that each member of the group turns
in his or her own "option paper" as described in number 3 above.
the energy option that was chosen,
the reason why the energy option was chosen for the town,
the reasons why the other options were not chosen,
