In EdTech 470:1 our instructor, Dr. Dodge, the inventor of the WebQuest, provided us with an extensive list of sites to research in order to understand how to create a WebQuest.  WebQuests: Short and Long Term We examined many existing WebQuests to learn what effective layouts look like, what types of activities work well in WebQuests, and to determine how to begin the process.  What is a WebQuest?  Duncan Morrissey envisioned this WebQuest design and throughout the process, we expanded his concept to work effectively in a classroom environment that can be explained in this on-line experience.  Lisa Tattoli helped accumulate resources and explain how to teach the students and instructors how to navigate the WebQuest.  Duncan Morrissey's interest in British Literature combined with Lisa Tattoli's expertise in American Literature provided the backbone of knowledge behind creating this WebQuest.  American and British Literature  In addition to thanking Dr. Dodge for this teaching and learning opportunity, we want to thank our professors who have inspired us throughout our educational careers.

Thank You Flikr members:

Author Biography

Duncan Morrissey
I am a graduate of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) embarking on a career as a secondary educator focusing on English Language Arts. In my undergraduate career, I studied music in Italy, Austria, and France, British Romanticism in the U.K., and studied a broad range of subjects, from anthropology to zoology. I have a B.S. in Psychobiology and a minor in English. I am currently studying teacher education at San Diego State University (SDSU). My passions include classical music, piano, soccer, cooking, and travel.

Lisa Tattoli
I knew that I wanted to become a teacher since kindergarten. Mrs. Frost was my amazing, energetic, cheerful teacher who made me confident that I wanted to become a creative teacher just like her. I received my Master's degree in American Literature from San Diego State University in the Summer of 2008 and I started the teaching credential program during the same week that I finished my Master's degree. My favorite literature includes Native American, African American, and all cross-cultural literature and studies. I absolutely look forward to seeing my students everyday, wondering what new information we will learn from one another. I appreciate that the students have enthusiasm, teaching me something new during every class.
