Capstone Project

For this project I created a lesson plan using the assure model for my WebQuest.  In "Journals of Discovery" students must work in groups to conduct research then sift through that information to collectively decide what is relevant to their assigned topic as well as what information will help to support their main idea or argument.  Students also have the opportunity to work independently as they write their individual journals on life in the year 1492.  The groups then come back together for peer editing and revision.  Once the final product is finished, students have the opportunity to share their completed journals with the class.  This is a good tool to give students the opportunity to teach their peers what they learned while conducting research for their journals.
