Reviewer Comments:

This webquest is a guide for student exploration into US foreign policy post-9/11. Students are divided into different groups and assigned one of four countries (Iran, Afghanistan, China, and North Korea) to research. Key questions, a rubric, suggested websites, and a culminating journal activity are provided. This would be a useful lesson to implement in a current events class or at the end of a unit on US foreign policy in a US History course. It should be noted that there are some formatting issues throughout the lesson plan that would need to be cleaned up prior to its use. It would also be helpful to create a handout for students that gives them a clear overview of the assignment and includes a sample of the journal assignment.
