8th graders learn through Moodle
Just after studying the American Revolution, the 8th grade Social Studies classes of Mrs. Simpson and Mr. Stanford turned to technology and the internet to help explore the next time period in American history. Mrs. Simpson and Mr. Stanford worked with educational technology specialist Tess Auseman to design a moodle based webquest. The webquest focused on the first four Presidents of the United States, the Louisiana Purchase, Lewis and Clark, the Industrial Revolution, and sectionalism in pre-civil war America. The webquest took one week to complete as students were exposed to around 100 years of American History.
