Title: An Internet WebQuest on Victorian England


1
An Internet WebQuest on Victorian England

2
Introduction This project is called a Webquest.
It will help you to better understand many areas
of Victorian life. You will work in teams of four
to accomplish the given task. In order to be
successful, you will need to work cooperatively,
use your time and resources effectively and
complete the task as instructed. You will need to
use your research, writing and presenting skills.
You are a team of reporters, photographers and
journalists for Time Life. You have managed to
meet someone who believes your story.
3
The Quest As good journalists would, you
have decided to take advantage of your unique
situation. You will choose one of the following
feature stories for your group to complete. Your
final product will be a newspaper featurette. You
may decide how you want to present your project
to the class.
4
  • Feature 1. Learn about child labour. Interview a
    child worker or factory owner to find out what it
    was like to write your story or article.
  • Feature 2. Learn about daily life in Victorian
    England. Interview men and woman to find out what
    they did, what their homes were like, what types
    of activities they enjoyed and the events that
    were going on during the time.
  • Feature 3. Learn about Victorian fashion. Of
    course every good magazine has to include
    fashion. Tell what the latest fashion trends were
    of the time.
  • Feature 4. Find out what Christmas was like
    during the Victorian era. We know that Charles
    Dickens is responsible for a renewed interest in
    Christmas, find out how the Victorians really
    celebrated and learn about the customs (some of
    which we still celebrate today.)

5
Phase 1 - Background Something for
Everyone Don't forget to try to answer the 5 W's
of reporting- who, what, where, when , why (and
sometimes how).
  • Every group member has a specific task, but you
    will all be working on the writing and
    researching of the articles. Your specific title
    or task means that it is your responsibility to
    make sure that you as a group get that specific
    job done (i.e. the photographer provides texts
    and photos on his field, the editor sets the
    timeline and oversees the project etc.).
  • The following are your roles (choose one for each
    group member)

6
  • 1. photographer/writer
  • Use the Internet information linked below to
    answer these questions specifically related to
    photographer/writer In addition to sharing the
    writing, the photographer is responsible for
    locating and downloading or scanning relevant
    photos or drawings.

7
  • 2. editor/writer
  • Use the Internet information linked below to
    answer these questions specifically related to
    editor/writer In addition to sharing the
    writing, the editor is in charge of of overseeing
    the project. They should keep the group on task,
    set a timeline, and check the progress that the
    group is making.

8
  • 3. reporter/writer
  • Use the Internet information linked below to
    answer these questions specifically related to
    reporter/writer In addition to helping to
    write the articles, the reporters will be
    responsible for printing hard copies of the
    articles and will have a large decision in how
    the newsletter will be put together.

  • The Resources
  • The Industrial Revolution - Britain becomes the
    workshop of the world. Use the indexes and links
    to find out more from this page. The BBC site
    full of useful information which you can navigate
    your way round
  • The Victorian Web - Tons of information on
    various aspects of Victorian Life
  • Victorian Station - Read about Victorian
    architecture, lifestyle, interior design, arts
    and literature.
  • Victorian Schools - Click on the little figure
    for a description of school life and click on
    Timetable to see their lessons!
  • Saundra Altmans Past Patterns - Clothing
    patterns of Victorian style clothing.
  • Victorian Women - The role of women in Victorian
    society
  • An Overview of Victorias Reign - Good basic
    background information, not too long to read,
    giving you an understanding of her reign
  • Britain 1700-1900 Industrial Revolution - This
    web site is about the technical changes of that
    time.
  • Victorians and the Poor - A country of two
    nations many Victorians struggled to understand
    and explain poverty. Was this because of
    circumstances beyond the individual's control or
    the direct result of their indolence? To
    discourage dependency, workhouse conditions were
    worse than the lowest standard of the independent
    labourer. Find out more about the treatment of
    the poor
  • Railways in the 19th Century - British web site
    organized by people, cities, companies, etc.
  • Prisons - The Prison System in the Victorian Age

10
Phase 2 - Debating, Discussing, and Reaching
Consensus
  • You have all learned about a different part of
    Victorian England. Now group members come back to
    the larger WebQuest team with expertise gained by
    searching from one perspective. You must all now
    answer the Task / Quest(ion) as a group. Each of
    you will bring a certain viewpoint to the answer
    some of you will agree and others disagree. Use
    information, pictures,facts, opinions, etc. from
    the Webpages to put together your final product-
    a newspaper featurette. Your WebQuest team should
    write stories and articles that everyone on the
    team can live with.

11
  • Each group will pass in a newspaper featurette,
    but you will also be presenting the information
    to the class. Decide how you want to do this.
  • You probably don't want to just read your
    featurette to the class. You could present it to
    the class as a six o'clock news report or as a
    journal type program such as 10 Minutes where
    they interview the people that they are reporting
    about. These are just some ideas. You decide how
    you want to present to the class, but remember to
    be creative.
