Holocaust: Devil's Arithmetic WebQuest

I developed my first ever WebQuest, with two colleagues.  I've put my parts together, and would love your feedback.  My colleagues worked on the formative assessment pieces and one of the final artifacts.

Feel free to use the site for your own classroom use in language arts or social studies.  If you have ideas to add, please let me know... the best of work is always a collaborative effort of great minds!  Click here to enter: Selecting Your Fate, a virtual exploration.

  1. Erin,
    Very well done. Yolen's book is an excellent choice and the tasks are clear. Even though all camps need to be visited you allowed students to decided where to begin. Graphics set the tone as to the seriousness of the subject matter.

  2. JoAnn,

    Thank you so much! You're right, Yolen's book is key to adding an emotional element to the project. This is my first time reading it, and I am enjoying her work very much.

    I truly appreciate your detailed feedback. It's so nice to gain such insight and reflection.

    Much appreciated,


  3. This looks amazing, so much more fun than any project I ever got to do in school. I love not only how it incorporates so many different mediums, but also the variety of online tools involved like schoology, animoto, glogster, etc. I think it's really important to start utilizing these tools in the classroom to completely revolutionize how students learn, instead of just using google to find research for a paper.

    I'm starting a ning community around this concept called PastPresent. If you'd ever be interested in guest blogging, or joining to share your insight that would be great.


  4. Sarah,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    I'll check out your ning. Thank you for the resource.
