Identity theft is not uncommon, but teenagers think they are exempt because they don't have credit cards and bank accounts. This WebQuest is a real eye-opener for some. Others may have already been victims either personally or through their parents.
Before beginning the WebQuest, the students completed a Scaffolded Reading Experience in which they learned the ten vocabulary words listed on Attachment #1. The comprehension of these words is essential to the success of this WebQuest. Attachment #1 is only one of the activity included in the SRE. If you would like more information on this SRE, please contact me.
This WebQuest is used in connection with the following content area:
