Presentation of a WebQuest Developed by: Jitka Malcová E-mail: email@example.com@obchodskolazr.cz URL: http://jitule.borec.cz/webquest Grammar through UNESCO Heritage
Why this topic? Why connected with grammar? It hasn‘t existed yet. It is the most famous sight in our region. It looks nice I didn‘t have any other ideas. I wanted to create st. interesting for grammar and connect it with some arts…
The WebQuest is about: The famous architect Jan Blažej Santini Aichel who designed the Pilgrimage church of St. John of Nepomuk on Zelená hora. This church connects two main architecture styles- gothic and barogue. It is connected with the second half of the 17th and beginning of 18th centuries.
Students must: Cooperate in couples and discuss the problems. Work also individually. Then discuss and show their work to the whole class. Find info on Internet. Work with grammar and vocabulary. Do a little artistic work(drawings). Think about two different periods of time.
Evaluation I Self checking of vocabulary through matching test. Checking grammar with the teacher through e-mail. Thinking about two different periods of time, what did people wear,what sort of buildings did they build? Classroom discussion and exhibition of drawings.
My Remarks with creating the WebQuest I wasn‘t able to work with WebQuest generators. I didn‘t like the on-line work. Then I created it in NVU. I needed in some cases knowledge of HTML tags. I used a little help of more experienced person.
Evaluation II What did students practise? Grammar – Conditionals 3. Vocabulary connected with architecture, life of famous person. Oral presentation. Couple discussions and cooperation. Some sort of creativity, drawings.
Conclusion It was very interesting to try this work. I learnt a lot of new things. I found out how much I don‘t know… It took a big amount of time… I am sure I will never create another WebQuest myself. A lot of better professionals made many WebQuests and I will use them!!!
