10/15 Draft WQ due. Put the URL to your WebQuest on Lino for Art Teacher's (Dr. Jennifer Motter). Reply to another's blog with a peer critique by 10/20.
|Part 3: Create first draft of WebQuest by Oct. 15. Provide Peer Feedback by Oct. 20. The middle school art teacher will provide revision requests on October 22. Complete revisions by class on October 27.|
By classtime on Oct. 6, 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 either 7th or 9th graders. Select a grade level. The class periods are 54 minutes. Middle School students will have 1 week (5 class periods) in November to do the WebQuest art lesson that you create. There are three 9th grade classes ranging in size from 9-15 students, and three 7th grade classes ranging is size from 15-25 students. We will learn about the students from the teacher, Dr. Jennifer Motter, with a Skype call on Oct. 1, from 7:15-8:00 pm.
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 to a WebQuest. 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/
By classtime on October 8, 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 October 8, discuss your ideas with each other and provide suggestions and resources to peer's ideas in the class.

Your lesson provides learner with information, but does not provide processes that would enable students to evaluate it and generate new insights from it.
You met deadlines of draft, peer critiques, & revision. Your peer critique provides suggestions for revision.
Your WebQuest uses Web2.0 technologies for clearly articulated art learning goals, and connects with the your concept for the course in some way, as well as includes 3D printing as a process.
Visual design conveys theme; text is visually readable; writing is clear, succinct, and age appropriate; grammar/spelling are correct; & links work and are integrated, relevant, and titled.
Introduction sets-up the task in a compelling way. The task and process facilitates critical and creative thinking throughout the lesson.Rubrics are clear and relate to goals of the Webquest.

Reflection & grading/feedback to middle school student work.
Reflection & grading/feedback lacks evidence to support the responses.
