Top 25 Jobs in Canada: A One Page Webquest

Top 25 Jobs in Canada: A One Page Webquest

Are you covering a work or employment theme in your classes? Have your students learn about the top 25 jobs in Canada, according to a popular media website! This one page (okay, one page double-sided) webquest directs your students to a popular website to answer questions about the top jobs in Canada. The website has been running this feature yearly for some time now, so you can be sure it will run for some time in the future. What does this webquest offer your students? It tackles the issue of “you can not be what you can not see’.” If you’re working with newcomers to Canada as I am, you’re probably aware that many of them simply don’t know what jobs are out there. Well, this webquest addresses that. It also works on the skills of following instructions, comprehending information, and reproducing information. It helps develop skimming skills and the ability to identify key information. Who is this webquest for? It’s primarily aimed at English language learners from CLB 2-4, but it could also be used in elementary school classes. It could also be used at higher levels: while the language is simple, the content is not. Anything I should know? Webquests require a lot of explicit guidance at first. When I start doing them, I usually take students the process of answering the first one or two questions, step by step. You can never be too obvious when showing students how to complete them. Anything else? For your convenience, an answer key has been provided. The web site has been confirmed active and in use as of 2018-04-15. Feedback is appreciated! :)
