This WebQuest is design to boost students' appreciate for music and the arts. It is also design to produce a level of understand of music's functionality and its benefits or effects on temperament/mood/emotions, etc . Of course there are hundreds of avenues through which music can impact the world; however, this WebQuest targets specifically: music in movies. Though this would be consider a "colorful" or fun project it calls for a great deal of time. It may require anywhere from 6-8 weeks or even up to an entire semester to complete (depending upon how deep music educators desires their students to delve in research and/or composition). I would recommend that this particular WebQuest be assigned to grade levels 11 and/or 12 considering the rigor. I would also suggest that this assignment be extended to those students who have either taken and completed Music Theory (at least levels 1 and 2 in those curricula that divide them as such) or some level of Music Composition, Form and Analysis, and/or any other higher level music/arts course. Any additions to up the requirements (i.e. the number of pages of the research paper, etc.) or to even them out are welcome and fully acceptable.

I am an undergraduate student at Elizabeth City State University majoring in Music Education. Prior to graduating from Hertford County High School, in Ahoskie, NC, I developed my gifts as a singer, musician, and a minister of the Gospel and these gifts have afforded my opportunity to attend this great institution. This WebQuest is based upon a major project that I completed in order to graduate for high school. I believe that all students should have an opportunity to endeavor in the arts to develop and/or discover the talents they may possess. In fact it could be as beneficial to those students as it was to me. Furthermore, music and the arts are greatly unappreciated in the world of education and this is one way in which students and educators alike can gain an understanding of music's validity and vitality in the world we live in.
