Introduction: The students at Templeton Middle School have been studying the
Renaissance period in their social studies classes. They also had the
opportunity to travel to the Milwaukee Art Museum to view the Treasures of
Poland exhibit featuring Leonardo da Vincis Lady with an Ermine and The
Last Judgment altar piece. Milwaukee is only one of two US cities honored
with this paintings visit.
Process: Students will complete this webquest both as an individual and a
team. Two products are required, a written paper and a team PowerPoint
presentation. The webquest is short-term and should take approximately 7-10
days to complete.
Learners: This webquest was designed to enhance the study of the Renaissance
by the 7th grade students at Templeton Middle School in Sussex, Wisconsin.
The students are comfortable in the use of the Internet and computer search
Evaluation: The individual projects can be scored using the 7 Gold Writing
Rubric or the 6 Traits Rubric. Both rubrics can be found at the link
provided to my homepage. The PowerPoint rubric is used for the group
presentation and is also found at the link provided to my homepage.
Conclusion: This webquest could be expanded to include other Renaissance
artists from other countries.
