The Introduction orients students and captures their interest. It gives an overview of the activity. The introduction (and the entire WebQuest) is oftentimes written in the second person (“You” or “Your group”), for it is directed to your students. Some creative WebQuests use a scenario that is first presented in the Introduction (e.g., “Your class are consultants working for the Environmental Protection Agency studying the problem of air pollution in New York City.”) Be sure to define the context and location of your WebQuest in the Introduction. The introduction should be motivational and include an overview of what they will experience.
