Need a task? Just “Google it.” But is it a quality task? And what makes a quality task? How are tasks and teaching related? Better yet, how do tasks and teaching impact college and career readiness? In this session, participants will identify the characteristics of rich tasks, evaluate examples, and consider modifications for increasing rigor.
