Description: This lesson was developed by three undergraduate Secondary Education Majors at the West Chester University, in Integration of Technology in Education course. The goal of this assignment for us was to create a WebQuest that challenges the student to work together using multiple resources integrating Technology into the classroom. Because we are Secondary Education Majors, our WebQuest is geared toward 9th-12th grade students. This lesson challenges students to do research on the French Revolution and analyze how the social classes of the Era were portrayed in the film Les Miserables. They will then take their own thoughts about the social classes and produce a novel creation. This project helps student build interpersonal and linguistic intelligence. The will be working in groups and doing research which will challenge the categories. This WebQuest takes students through just about every cognitive level of Bloom's Taxonomy, with areas emphasized more than other. These students are required to remember, understand, apply, analyze, evaluate and create to be successful in this WebQuest. This WebQuest is designed for a 9th-12th grade French class. It is made to cover material for the culture, not language section of the course. It involves social studies, language arts, but there is some French language exposure in the film. This WebQuest could be modified for a research project in a Language arts class, or it could be used in a social studies classroom.

This resource guides students through the process of creating an imovie about the French Revolution that is based on the movie, Les Miserables. Students first watch a segment of the movie and then work in groups to research, write, and produce the project. Students are assigned roles and expected to use google docs to keep track of their information. The resource includes a rubric that could be shared with students as a way of providing them with clear expectations for the project. Overall, this is a valuable way to further student understanding of the time period, however, in order to be successful it would be necessary to provide students with lots of support and guidance. For example, students must have background knowledge of how to use google docs and imovie. It would also helpful for students to watch a sample project as a model and to be given more detailed handout of what they need to do at each step of the process.
