Next year I get the opportunity to teach intervention classes for middle schoolers. I worried specifically about how these tasks would evolve if students did not have the prerequisite skills to fully engage with the tasks. I am wondering if the “need for Math” that these rich tasks produce plus the consolidation piece will produce growth in skill equal or exceeding that produced by trying to shortcut through the hero’s path. I would still need to address the “red dot” group of students that did not get it either way.
