Reflections and Recommendations


I would try to get more adult help for trouble shooting and helping with the technology. Model notetaking with the AmericasLibrary site before we use the WebQuest.... Try to have one more person, teaching assistant?, to help with the webquest. We had 3 people, teacher, librarian and assistant and it went pretty smoothly on all the days when there were three.
