Title: Harnessing the Power of the Purposeful Task (3-5)

Session Description: In this session, we’ll explore the power of problem-based lessons and how they can be used as a formative assessment tool. In specific, we’ll look at the structure of 3-Act Math Tasks and how these tasks can be used to build conceptual understanding of fractions in the intermediate grades. By working through multiple tasks, we’ll develop an understanding of the purposeful moves that take place throughout a lesson. Participants will leave with an understanding of what 3-Act Tasks are and how to implement them in their classroom.
