20140911040827PezyT.png

Step 1

You must get in groups of 4.

Before starting your WebQuest, discuss within your group the following questions below to gain some background information on ONGs 

1.   Do you know what an NGO is? Do you know any?

2.    What is the aim of any NGO? 

Now, decide the NGO you are going to talk about. Use any search engine to look for an NGO located in your town or city. Here you have a list of some well-known ones. You can look for one on the web or choose one from this list:

  • GREENPEACE
  • AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL
  • ACTION AGAINST HUNGER
  • WWF
  • OXFAM INTERNATIONAL 

Then, give a name to your group. For example, if you have chosen an NGO which works for the homeless people you can call yourselves THE SHELTERS, or THE GREENS if your NGO campaigns for the environment.

 Step 2

Each member of the group will have a different role/task in his/her group. He or she must become an expert on the assigned task.These roles and tasks are the followings:

 1)   Expert on the ORGANIZATION

2)   Expert on the PROBLEMS

3)   Expert on the PROJECTS

4)   Expert on VOLUNTEER WORK 

Now, you must search for information on the web and you must be prepared to answer these questions:

1)   Expert on the ORGANIZATION

a)   What is the mission or purpose of your organization?

b)   Where does your NGO operate?

c)   What does it do?

d)   How does your NGO raise and spend money?

e)   When was your NGO founded and by whom?

2)   Expert on the PROBLEMS

a)   What the problem consists in?

b)   What causes the problem?

c)   What are the consequences of the problem?

d)   How many people/animals/plants are affected by the problem?

3)   Expert on the PROJECTS

a)   Places/cities/countries where they have projects.

b)   Type of project.

c)   The number/amount of people/animal the project affects.

d)   Cost of the project.

e)   Expected results.

4)   Expert on VOLUNTEER WORK

a)   Contact the organization to ask for their volunteering program.

b)   How many people work and/or volunteer for your NGO?

c)   Which different kinds of jobs can you do in a volunteering program?

d)   Which skills are useful and what attitude is helpful for a good experience?

e)   Which countries could you participate in as a volunteer?

 Step 3

Now, get together to share the information and analyze the information found on the websites. Each group member must interpret the information they gathered on their task. You will present what you learned to the group members so that each member of the group gets the whole picture of the NGO.

Then, decide the form/colour/images/sound-music of your slide presentation. Remember!!!!! your slide (PowerPoint) presentation must have:

     Between 20 and 25 slides (5-6 per person/expert)

     Few words written on each slide and a lot of images/videos

Next, start working on your slides.

When you finish, get together again and put all the slides together. Change things you donít like so that your slide presentation is arranged in a uniform way.

Step 4 

 Show your arduous research to your classmates.   Be prepared to speak to the class (1-2minutes max. each person).

 Extra points

You will get extra points if you invite/bring a volunteer from the NGO to your oral presentation to help you conclude your task.
