This WebQuest is designed to take one quarter (8 weeks) for the students to complete with success. The beauty of a WebQuest is that the student can work on the project at their pace and we can be there to help students who need us one on one. I love to sit one on one with a student to assess if they are understanding the tasks. If not, I can help them there without the entire class having to stop while I assist one student. I do feel that many students truly benefit from the solo interaction with the teacher.
The final piece of the project is a great mid-term or final project. For those students in DECA, this can be tailored to meet the requirements of the Advertising Paper (15 or 30 pg).
