Abstract

Thematic integrated instruction enables teachers to deliver instructions in an integrated manner in order to exercise students’ critical thinking skills. WebQuest is an inquiry-based learning activity that emphasizes on the use of information acquired from the web. WebQuest could increase learning motivation and foster students’ critical thinking. The purpose of the study was to investigate whether incorporating WebQuest to thematic integrated instruction promoted seventh grade students’ problem solving ability in Taiwan and to understand students’ attitudes towards using WebQuest in the geography thematic integrated instruction. Results of the study indicated WebQuest successfully improved students’ problem solving ability. However, students’ attitude towards using WebQuest was slightly negative.
