Teacher Page

As a precursor to any science teacher who wishes to construct a web quest , do bear in mind that the content that the student will use to complete the task must be specific. That means a general website with all the information is too vague depending on the age group, ensure that the specific heading or column on the web page is given to narrow the students search , as the time frame for most lesson is 40 minutes.

On a public serve like what is used in a public school, be vigilant and block social sites like Facebook, and twitter,etc (unless they are part of the web quest) to ensure that student stay on task instead of idling the class session. As a final note,  be creative, do not limit the lesson to just student watching a YouTube video, try to find interactive websites that present the content in a unique and exciting way for the student to enjoy, ask the carry out class work.
