Performance tasks build on content knowledge, process skills, and work habits and are strategically placed in a lesson or unit to enhance learning as the student “pulls it all together.” Such performance tasks are not “add-ons” at the end of instruction. They are both an integral part of the learning and an opportunity to assess the quality of student performance. When the goal of teaching and learning is knowing and using, the performance-based classroom emerges. Performance tasks range from short activities taking only a few minutes to projects culminating in polished products for audiences in and outside of the classroom. This course will provide participants an opportunity to build, implement, analyze and evaluate tasks and it will also guide participants to analyze, evaluate and respond to resulting student work. Successful participants in this class will collaborate with course-alike colleagues to develop, implement and respond to three or more job-embedded tasks.
