For information about:

Frederick County Public Schools has trained teachers in a series of institutes entitled Camp WebQuest in the summers of 1999, 2000, and 2001. During the 4-day workshops, funded through a Technology Literacy Challenge Grant, teachers designed inquiry-based lessons. These lessons, or WebQuests*, are indexed, starting from this introduction.

*A WebQuest is an inquiry activity or lesson that presents students with a challenging task, provides access to an abundance of usually on-line resources and scaffolds the learning process to prompt higher order thinking.

The WebQuest model was developed in early 1995 at San Diego State University by Bernie Dodge.
