However you worked on this WebQuest, the main things to think about would be how well you worked together, shared your findings and developed them to understand how
- all the pictures were related to .......
- how it started in a very simple way in .......
- how it spread widely, in particular, to various parts of Britain and America
- how this caused some of these places to expand
- what the treatment involved
- discover that some very influential Victorians took this treatment
In order to do this you
- cooperated in pairs, then groups or in the class, depending on how you tackled this
- organised your material well
- recorded your sources of information for reference
- added facts to a time line which helped you to make sensible links between unrelated items
- this might have led you to make some suppositions (ask your teacher!)
- looked at several sources to come to a conclusion about each image
- discovered that some sources provided you with additional information about the overall theme, or other images
- have collected all your evidence together and presented it in a new way, suitable for others who know nothing about the subject
- you have learnt a great deal about the area where you live and extended your awareness of some aspects of the Victorian era
- and finally - hopefully enjoyed yourself, because I did in putting this together!
Look at the extension activities which will extend your knowledge of all aspects! Just dip in and out of them.
The Official Bit - for your teacher!
|Most children will:||make appropriate use of dates; identify changes in the localities within the Victorian period; give some reasons for the changes studied; select information from various sources to find out about aspects of the period|
|Some children will not have made so much progress and will:||present selected information using some specialist terms; describe some features of the period|
|Some children will have progressed further and will:||select and combine information from several sources to find out about the past; give results of some of the main events and changes in the locality; produce extended writing that is organised and structured appropriately|
