1. You will be divided into groups of 4. In your group there will be one Reporter, one Historian, one Advertiser, and one Literary Expert.
2. Before you do anything else, your group needs to check on what you already know or believe about the Russian Revolution and events that occurred during this time period. Print this anticipation guide and discuss your group's opinion to prepare yourself for what you'll read next.
3. Everyone in your group should read the short summary of the events that unfolded during the Russian Revolution. Each person will be assigned a section of the reading and is responsible for learning that information and teaching it to their fellow group members. This is important information! It will help you to understand the allegory present in Animal Farm. When you finish reading and teaching your group about your assigned section you will need fill out the Sequence Organizer with your group members.
4. Now it's time to get started on your individual portion of the webquest. Click on your role to discover what you will be doing for your individual project - it is all described on your individual page.
5. Once everyone in your group has finished their individual task you will get together to create a presentation for the class. Your presentation must be in video form (think a TV commercial) that is convincing your audience (your classmates) to do or believe something. Your video must in some way relate to Animal Farm, as well as have a clear message. Remember that you are to use propaganda - which is a persuasion technique - so that means you must persuade your audience. Include at least 1 propaganda technique, which must be obvious when viewing your presentation. Before you record, complete a storyboard for your video, so everything is planned ahead of time.
