11 Congratulations on your new job Evaluation Now as an important person in Cherryville, the citizens will want to know what your job really is, and what you are doing for the community. Your first order of business will be to submit an article for the local newspaper, The Cherryville Daily. IntroductionIntroduction, Task, Process, Home, Conclusion, CreditsTaskProcessHomeConclusionCredits WebQuest Article Rubric.doc The Cherryville Daily is the source for local news for the citizens of Cherryville. Our newspaper maintains a high level of quality, because we require that all articles submitted are carefully edited by the author. Your article should be a five paragraph essay, and should include at least one picture. When everyone’s article is written and has been edited by a peer, you will come together as a group to “publish” it on a poster to hang on the wall either in the classroom or on the hall. Finally, your group will present your Finished Web Quest to the class.

12 Conclusion How does it feel to be a VIP in Cherryville? You should have learned a lot about being a Mayor, Sheriff, City Council Person, a Fire Fighter, a City Works Manager, and a Newspaper Editor. You should have a good feel for how to search the Web to learn what you need to know. Also, you made a job choice based on what you learned, and on your own experiences as well. You have shown what you learned with your newspaper article published in The Cherryville Daily and with Your classroom Web Quest presentation. If you would like to learn more about these jobs, or maybe some other ones you find interesting, here are a few sites to help you get started.

13 The original Power Point for this Web Quest was created by Ellen Snyder, Julie Boyland, and Mike Raven, all of whom were students of Education at Kennesaw State University. This project was an assignment for EDUC 3302: Curriculum and Assessment, During Summer Semester 2006. We received assistance from our instructor Cherry O. Steffen. This Web Quest is not being maintained at this time. IntroductionIntroduction, Task, Process, Evaluation, Conclusion, HomeTaskProcessEvaluationConclusionHome

15 Students will be evaluated individually and as a group. The individual work will carry more weight since the majority of the project focuses on individual research and writing the essay for the newspaper article. Use a rubric to evaluate this project and keep the following questions in mind as well: How long did this project take? How balanced was this project for your students? Did everyone complete an application and secure two letters of recommendation? Did everyone complete their essay, including editing and publishing? Did the groups work cooperatively, both with the computer at the beginning, and with the construction of the poster at the end? Remember that although the results of student research may seem to you quite simplistic, you should evaluate their research skills and organizational skills, and know that in depth content will come with additional practice.
