WebQuests are prolific online. Every time teachers search for WebQuests, a quick search on a favorite search engine yields hundreds of results. However, much like young students who have first discovered the Internet, they can be overwhelmed by the quantities of sites available. In order to give pre-service teachers a tool to avoid this needless incertitude, I created a WebQuest to guide them through the process of creating their own. Since this was produced in a reading methods course, my intent was to give these students an understanding that teaching content area reading requires both motivational elements and scaffolded instruction to be effective. In introducing them to the WebQuest, I gave them such a strategy. After a two week engagement in this WebQuest, these students yielded some extraordinary WebQuests for content area reading and became a little more adept at using technology for the purposes of instruction.
