This study aimed at investigating the effect of using a WebQuest Model (WM) on developing General Secondary Stage students' critical reading performance. The participants were first year General Secondary Stage students at Asmaa' Bint Abi Bakr General Secondary School for Girls in Suez Governorate in Egypt. Twenty-four first year General Secondary Stage students participated in each of the experimental and control groups. Both groups were pre-tested by using the Critical Reading Performance Test (CRT) for equivalence in their critical reading performance. The researcher trained the experimental group on using the WM to develop their critical reading performance. The experimental group and the control group were post-tested by using the CRT. Differences between the mean scores of the pre- and post-CRT was calculated by using the t-test. The results indicated that statistically significant differences were found between the mean scores of the experimental group and the control group on the post-CRT in favor of the experimental group.The results also showed that there were statistically significant differences in the mean scores of theexperimental group between the pre- and post-CRT in favor of the post-CRT. The results revealed the effectiveness of using the WM in developingcritical reading performance among General Secondary Stage students.
