Gifted Education

As you have worked through this course you have used a variety of resources such as watching films, reading the textbook , and conducting observations. This assignment is a Web Quest. A Web Quest is an inquiry-oriented lesson format in which all the information that learners work with comes from the web. This format is a good way to utilize the internet and engage in the type of thinking that the 21st century requires. You will be viewing two different websites and one web page to complete the Web Quest. As you navigate through the websites and answer the questions, DO NOT copy and paste the information. Paraphrase the information into your own words. Have fun!
