Is a constructed response a performance task? Is a performance task project based learning? Why does it have to be so confusing? Come to this workshop to share how you are using performance tasks in your instructional practice and to learn from others. We will examine the quality of available tasks, understand the validation process, and leave with the intention of using an authentic task in your classroom before the end of the school year. Sample resources as well as validation rubrics will be available.
