Beyond Tomás and the Library Lady: A Webquest about Migrant Farm Workers

 

Evaluation

When you complete your webquest, you will be evaluated on your journal entries and your migrant farm workers book. You will complete a self-evaluation and I will also evaluate you using the rubric at the end of this page.


Self-Evaluation

In your journal, please answer the following questions with detailed explanations:

Exploring Websites

  • Did I thoroughly look through every website?
  • Did I self-monitor to make sure I understood the text?
  • Did I look at variety of the resources available for each task?

Journal Entries

  • Did I remember to include my name, the date, the title of the website, and a summary of the website in each journal entry I wrote?
  • Were my journal entries detailed?
  • Did I think back about what I learned from the websites I explored?
  • Did my journal entries do a good job of communicating my learning, reactions, and feelings about the websites I explored?

Group Book

  • Are everyone's ideas included in our book?
  • Do the pages in the book represent the information that is key to understanding the life of a migrant farm worker?
  • Is our book neat?
  • Are there any spelling or grammatical errors on our pages?

Group Work
