Step 3: Writing the Process Section
We will go through the Analyzing the WebQuest Process as a class exercise to help you analyze and see how a Process section can be be developed, but you can also refer back to this checklist as you write your Process section.
For some more specific guidelines concerning three categories of support the learner needs, see the following links:
- As you develop your Process, utilize the resources we initially looked at in class. Note particularly these links in the topic on the Process.
- Look at the examples under the Scaffolding section.
- The Resources, for example, gives strategies and examples of types of pre-defined resources to effectively direct your student.
- The Process Guides section are supporting materials that help students with various process techniques, such as brainstorming or using primary documents.
- The Visual Organizers link gives you practical insight into ways of utilizing the Inspiration software we learned in the course.
- Reception scaffolding—guide students in extracting information from the sources you give them;
- Transformation scaffolding—guidance on operating at the higher level of Bloom’s;
- Production scaffolding—supporting various types of writing tasks.
As a final check, use the Process Checklist to review your process section.
