The teacher of a WebQuest facilitates learning in a
way; meaning he/she guides learning instead of directly instructing it. The WebQuest site is designed so that each student has the ability to complete the project on his/her own; however, the teacher is a crucial element in making sure that each student is challenged along the way through various higher-level questioning strategies. The WebQuest represents approximately three weeks of daily lessons. Since students are meant to explore the WebQuest on their own, no traditional lesson plans are a part of this unit. Instead, a brief outline will showcase the WebQuest (Figure 13). The WebQuest can be found at the following address: http://www.spomonie.com/mrp/voyage/title.htm>.
