Now that we have gotten past the webquest assignment I can breathe a little easier. Even though the assignment was time consuming, I got a lot out of it. It helped me to reflect on the importance of creating a diverse environment as well as becoming very methodical. It makes one think ahead in order to create a truly effective assignment for students.
The webquest assignment is one that teaches us how to teach others. It breaks up the monotony of traditional lecture based teaching and gets students involved. It allows students to take some ownership of their leanings - which could increase their engagement, especially if it's a topic that they have a great deal of interest in. Students can take from this probably more than a lecture can offer. Utilizing other teaching methods will keep the classroom interesting as well as create a climate of inclusiveness. I think in all the assignment was much needed and important in developing each students skills.
