WebQuests have become a popular form of guided inquiry using Web resources. The goal of WebQuests is to help students think and reason at higher levels, and use information to solve problems. In this paper we present modifications to the WebQuest model drawing on primarily on schema theory. We believe these changes will further enhance student reflection and deeper conceptual change through the use of WebQuest activities in the classroom. The revised model is illustrated in a makeover of a sample WebQuest.
