Part 1: Introduction to WEBQUESTS

By classtime on Oct. 2, read the text linked here, including checking out each link here. This text introduces you to what a WebQuest is, as well as the pedagogical approach inherent in the design of a WebQuest, how to design for interactivity; and provides a process, templates, resources, and examples to help you to create a WebQuest.

Your WebQuest will be for a class of 8th graders. The class periods are 54 minutes. Middle School students will begin October 22 and complete by Nov. 15 (or if more time is needed by Nov. 27) the WebQuest art lesson that you create. We will learn about the students from the teacher, Dr. Jennifer Motter, with a Zoom call on Oct. 2, from 6:00-7:00 pm. Dr. Motter has 3 eighth grade classes, so three WebQuests would work best for her. Also, she prefers that the WebQuests require group projects, rather than individual projects because 3D printers take a long time to print each object.

Build your WebQuests considering the concept you have selected in project 1 and teaching philosophy and goals developed in project 2, and 3D printing contemporary art concepts.

Additional resource is the Judy Chicago Art Education Collection at Penn State, and a participatory content-based art pedagogy outlined at http://judychicago.arted.psu.edu/participatory-art-pedagogy/ that we have discussed, particular regarding circle pedagogy. Your WebQuest Art Lesson should use Web2.0 technologies and concepts so that it is constructivist learning and participatory content-based art pedagogy. Click here for characteristics of Web 2.0. One option, still working with your concept, is to translate/expand one or more of the 14 encounters (or offshoots/parallels with another work of art) with The Dinner Party. See http://judychicago.arted.psu.edu/dpcp/index.php. Or develop ideas from the Judy Chicago Art Education Collection (sitemap at http://judychicago.arted.psu.edu/about/site-map/) such as http://feministartproject.rutgers.edu/resources/fare/ Or, get ideas from encounters with Linda Stein's social justice art at http://h2f2encounters.cyberhouse.emitto.net/

Part 2: Idea Generation for WEBQUESTS

By classtime on October 2, post on your blog an idea for your WebQuest including ideas for the introduction, task, and process, and explain how this idea fits your teaching philosophy and criteria of a WebQuest. In class on Oct. 2, discuss your ideas with each other and provide suggestions and resources to peer's ideas in the class.
