I’ve had a go at making my first Webquest based around The Black Cat by Edgar Allen Poe for Year 7 students. It’s part of a ballad writing scheme of work.
The students read the story and then create their own ballad based on the story.
To make it more interactive, I am also adding an element where they make a iMovie, using the iPads, of their ballad.
I found using http://www.zunal.com relatively straight forward, though had some difficulty posting my evaluation criteria, and therefore attached it as a document instead of having it in the contents box.
I tried to think about how to make it more interactive than just an online worksheet, and so found links to the Edgar Allen Poe museum.
I liked that I was able to add resources that could scaffold and also to include images. I also liked that it made me think about giving the students the mark scheme from the beginning.
If anyone has any ideas of other things I could include to make it more interesting to students, please send me your ideas!
