- Once the class has read the novel Pride and Prejudice, wether independently or as a class, the students are ready to begin the WebQuest activities.
- The first activity is to have each student choose a character from the list provided on the WebQuest. Once they have done this, it is time for them to begin their research on the 19th century and how their character fits into this time period.
- Because this project is an independent assignment, most of this work will be done outside of class. It is your choice to provide classtime or not. I would recommend setting some work days aside for those who do not have a computer at home.
- Once the student has had an adequate amount of time to research his or her character in relation to the 19th century, then it is time to create a resume.
- You may choose to bring in examples of resumes, but there is also a link provided on the WebQuest for students to use as a reference on how to create a resume. It provides different formates that the students can choose from.
- With the resume completed, the students are now ready to present themselves as their character.
- Each student will be allowed 5-7 minutes to present their resumes and their character's object. This should be a fun time for students to feel what it's like to be someone from the 19th century. A fun idea would be to decorate the classroom as if it were a scene from the 19th century, whether that be a Victorian home, a library, etc.
- As the teacher, it would be fun for you to dress up as a character for the presentations and maybe even present a resume yourself. You can serve as an example to the class.
