This WebQuest will include a tour of the 19th Centery, more specifically, a tour of Jane Austen's novel Pride and Prejudice. It will include a look into Regency England, the dress, the food, activities, etc, in relation to the view points of the characters in Pride and Prejudice.
- Before the students begin this WebQuest, they need to read Jane Austen's novel Pride and Prejudice individually or as a class. This WebQuest will serve as a good review of the novel. As the teacher, you have the option of having the student's choose a character before they read the novel so that they can note details, or you can have them choose a character after having read the novel. There are benefits to either way.
- You will want to know ahead of time if the students are familiar with what a resume is or if they have created one before. There is a link provided on the WebQuest, but if you feel the need to bring in some examples, do so.
