Do we teach content and rules or powerful tools?
Do we want our students to accept content meaning or make meaning?
The answer is D) all of the above. But finding the best balance between the two types of tasks is difficult and most of us were not taught to build task of rigor and high engagement. In our first session, we will complete a series of tasks as learners and then use The Powerful Task Rubric for Designing Student Work© to analyze the components of engagement and rigor. Teachers will leave with strategies they can use the next day in their classrooms.
