Abstract: WebQuests are an Internet-based technology application in which groups of students are taken through a specific set of steps toward the completion of a final project on a specific subject or multi-disciplinary subject. As with many other technologies and technology applications, there is a void in the published research that examines the effects that WebQuests have on students and student learning, especially in the English Classroom. Many educators are using technologies and technology applications that have not been examined in depth for the effects on student learning. This current situation of teachers using technologies and technology applications which are not proven instructional methods is the basis for this research study on WebQuests and student learning. This research study examines what students think about WebQuests, specifically in a secondary English classroom.
