In this part, reading and writing, I make it in the form of WebQuest.


Do you know what a WebQuest is?

According to, a WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented lesson format in which most or all the information that learners work with comes from the web. These can be created using various programs, including a simple word processing document that includes links to websites.

Among many Web-based applications in education, WebQuests have become popular learning tool. The WebQuest approach as one of the e-learning method uses internet resources as an essential and integral, component of the learning method. It engages students in information processing and collaboration.

WebQuest is an educational strategy designed by Bernie Dodge in 1995 that has been widely used to teach any subjects and at all levels. Dodge first defined a WebQuest in his seminal article as “an inquiry-oriented activity in which some or all of the information that learners interact with comes from resources on the Internet” (1995:1).

To summarize, we could say that a WebQuest is a constructivist learning activity that uses resources from the Web and presents an authentic task in context which implies transformation of the information, and encourages students’ participation in an autonomous and collaborative way, in groups where normally each student plays a different role incorporating the advantages of cooperative learning.

    For today’s english is much needed in a variety of activities. Not just for formality in the world of education, but also in everyday life. For that many, many ways to learn English. One of them with a tutorial toefl given to students four semesters.
    Given this English language tutorial, I find it helpful to learn english. I also say a big thank you to miss Nawang who have helped me. But there are things I need to convey to members suggestions to miss Nawang. In learning English is easy and fun for those who do enjoy it. As for people like me who do have limitations in learning English, an hour feels boring, saturated. So for miss Nawang, if tomorrow should be teaching again more varied teaching methods that do not seem boring anymore. Once again thank you for Nawang miss.
    sorry if false…
