    Open-ended tasks allow students to respond in a variety of ways. Open-ended tasks require students to explain answers and solve non-routine problems that have several different solutions.

    I did not find this one as helpful as I had hoped. Looking forward to other sessions though.

    Giving students problems with multiple entry points so all students can be involved.
