SCARY STAGES OF COLLEGE

You know you're in trouble when...
1. The McDonald's people know you by name from late night study breaks.
2. You have spent more time figuring out that you only need a 54% to pass the final than you have actually spent studying.
3. The college drunk confronts you and says: "Don't you think you should get to work now?"
4. Your study schedule is based on the rationale that you "might" actually die before the test!
5. Your parents inquire about your grades and you sing the Cookie Monster song: "C is for cookie, that's good enough for me..."
6. Mom calls to ask how you've been, and you immediately scream, "Get off my back, b*#%h!"

A WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented lesson format in which most or all the information that learnears work with comes from the web. 

It is distinguished from other internet-based research by four characteristics: 

  1. It is classroom-based.
  2. It emphasizes higher-order thinking (such as analysis, creativity, or criticism) rather than just acquiring information.
  3. The teacher preselects the sources, students cannot get web information from anywhere.
  4. Most WebQuest are pair or group work.
