Government WebQuests

USF's WebQuest is a publication of the College of Education by Master's Degree Students for fellow K-12 teachers and is edited by Ian Call and James A. Duplass.

Each WebQuest is divided into two components:

Teachers' Page is for the instructor and consist of:

  • a lesson plan explanation;
  • links to content websites;
  • a PowerPoint Presentation to be used in class;
  • resources needed by the teacher like, handouts, maps, etc.;
  • etc.

Students' Page is for the student.

  • only the Students' Page address should be given to students as the starting point for their WebQuest (students should not be given the Instructor's page). 
  • it should contain all the websites and resources like graphic organizers, rubrics, maps, etc. for students to complete their WebQuest.
