This study is aimed at promoting local wisdom through narrative text with the use of WebQuest. In the 21st century, students are required to master English in order to face the ASEAN Economic Community. However, students have to remember and maintain local wisdom in their country. English must be mastered by the students but local wisdom must not be forgotten. Therefore, narrative text material will be developed by incorporating local wisdom in Indonesia through WebQuest as a learning tool. There are five stages in this study including need analysis, material development, expert validation, and revision. Students are confronted with situations that require them to learn folktales in their area through WebQuest. There are some benefits of using WebQuest in teaching and learning such as (a) WebQuest help the learners to learn English and understand the local wisdom in their area. (b) WebQuest makes it easy for learners to find information about the culture that is in their area. (c) WebQuest increases the independence of learners in finding information and understanding narrative text. Tenth-grade students at one of the vocational high schools in Yogyakarta participated in this research development. The result indicates that material development through WebQuest is applicable, appropriate, and attractive to use by the students. Thus, promoting local wisdom by using WebQuest can increase learners’ knowledge about local wisdom in their country.
