1 Campaign for Independence A Web Quest on Philippine History for First Year High School

2 INTRODUCTION Change is the only permanent thing in the world, and during the times when people were fenced-in, education a privilege, government an iron-arm, and the spirit crushed, change could be radical. And radical would be relative depending on what faction you are in, what rights you are fighting for, and oftentimes, what blood courses through your veins.

3 TASK You are a representative at the investigative studies of the Historia de España en el Filipinas Internacional (History of Spain in the Philippines, International). You are given different cases about the Spanish times, and your task is to review, analyze, and formulate conclusions, opinions, and justifications based on your readings. The main proposition is what and who was most effective and affective of the different emergent factions. After which, you will defend your case in a moot court. Acting like judges are the Board of Directors composed of various Filipino and Spanish historians and lawyers.

4 PROCESS This Web Quest is designed to help describe the situations, factors, and effects of the various ways Filipinos rallied for change during Spains rule. STEP 1: TAKING SIDES You will group yourselves according to the different factions which arose during the Spanish times: –LoyalistsLoyalists –ReformistsReformists –RevolutionistsRevolutionists

5 Loyalists –Loyal to Mother Spain, who introduced to you God, brought you riches from Europe, and birthed you to a culture.

7 Revolutionists –Change occurs when you take action. And action should be taken on your hands and with arms. Otherwise, we will forever belong to Mother Spain. (here are the links to the sites on the net) – – – – – ey/top_stories/ top9.html ey/top_stories/ top9.html

8 STEP 2: CONSOLIDATE WITH YOUR COUNCIL –Meet with your other group mates and choose one topic or statement, which will be the core of your defenses and affronts at the court trial. All your readings should form the framework of this statement because your justifications and opinions will revolve around it. Know your readings well. STEP 3: STATE YOUR CASE –Each of the group would have a councilor who would present their summary of their testimonies, readings, and evidences. Try to be creative as possible; actual pictures and artifacts would make your arguments more convincing to the Board of Directors.

I need to tell more about how I think and feel. My writing is too formal or too informal. It sounds like I dont like the topic of the presentation. Word choiceThe words I use are striking but natural, varied, and vivid. I make routine word choices.I use the same words over and over and over. Some words may be confusing to the listener.
