The 5 Practices and 3-Act Tasks
I am struggling with aligning the 5-Practices with a 3-act task. Here is an example of a struggle that I face every time I run a task.
I ran the “Shot Put” extension task. I sequenced and selected student responses for students to share out. Not one student used a strategy of writing an equation to figure out the length of a red stick. Here is what I did:
I am a obsessed with Desmos activities, so I would select and run a Desmos activity that would get us to the learning goal by having students complete the “Double Clothesline” activity Here is the link to the activity: https://teacher.desmos.com/activitybuilder/custom/57c853ff512b84a00645bb57
After we completed the Desmos activity, I would then revisit the Shotput extension task and connect what we learned from the Desmos activity to the learning goal that I wanted students to obtain from the Shot Put task.
What are your thoughts on this strategy of consolidating and connecting? Would you have shared out the learning goal prior to running the Desmos activity? Do you think running the Desmos activity was not time well spent?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! 🙂
