Constructing a Lasting Peace in India and Pakistan - a Webquest with Wiki
Constructing a Lasting Peace in India and Pakistan: A WebQuest for 10th Grade World History was designed by Dan McDowell. It provides a nice example of a conflict related webquest that requires students to draft a shared document after multiple rounds of negotiation on core ideas and drafts of their texts. It uses a “Wiki” online text editor to permit students to do their shared editing from wherever they are, with a history of changes made available at all times. The simulation’s use of a wiki requires students to learn a new technology, but the learning curve is not too steep.
