The learning outcome
 
This quest gives students in the EFL classroom a chance to become familiar with Delphi one of the best-known archaeological sites in Greece. Throughout the quest students learn about greek ancient history and they also work together on decision making tasks. Students learn  how to distinguish important from secondary information and how to evaluate information. Because their final product is the result of collaborative work, students learn how to share what they learn, how to organize their work and be responsible for their own learning. Time management is also important. There is also a competitive aspect in the quest since at the end students present their projects to the  class and they all vote for the best.
 
Follow-up activities:
 
* A fieldtrip to Delphi so that students 
   can visit the actual site.
* Watching a documentary about Delphi for
   more information on the history.
* Preparing posters and inviting other  
   students to see them.
* Having the archaeologists, decorators and
   brochure designers in separate groups to
   discuss their experience and talk about the
   problems they faced.
 
Anticipated difficulties:
 
* Some of the links might be inactive so it is
   advisable to check them beforehand.
   If this is the case you can suggest other
   links.
* The lab availability might be limited. In this
   case students could work in their small
   groups at each other's house or at the local
   library - if it provides computer facilities.
