Webquest Rubric Back to Evaluation Page
Teacher Page This Webquest was designed for use in a 6th grade language arts classroom. According to core content, Language Standard 6.1, students should be able to demonstrate conventions of standard English grammar and usage when writing or speaking, For more on this standard go to the Common Core Website. The language standards for 6th grade focus heavily on Pronouns. I have found though that it is useless to cover pronouns without touching the other parts of speech. Usually after a reminder lesson many 6th grade students remember learning them, and some don’t. This lesson addresses review of elementary skills and get students to apply that knowledge on a more rigorous middle school level. By the end of this lesson they should remember the parts of speech and most definitely know pronouns. This Webquest meets KYTS standard 6 and NETST because it is designed to incorporate technology into instruction. It uses technology to assess and communicate student learning and facilitates student learning. It puts the information at the students level and requires them to use technology to absorb and create. This lesson is entirely student centered and inquiry based. Students are told to write down what they are learning, to practice as they feel the need, and the final cartoon product is using technology and imagination. It allows for a digital-age learning experience and assessment.
