As more teachers look to add high-yield tasks to their repertoire, the struggle to make it all work becomes real. Let’s examine how problem-based lessons can be used throughout the scope of a unit and how we can harness their power to move student thinking forward. We’ll identify strategies and explore some tasks that help us find a healthy balance between application, conceptual understanding, and procedural fluency. 


Participants will: 

  • Engage in grade appropriate problem-based lessons (PBL) and understand how the implementation of low-entry, high scalability tasks can be used to reach all students. 

  • Explore the use of problem-based lesions as regular practice. Participants will identify when and how these lessons can be used throughout the scope of a unit. 

  • Understand how problem-based lessons can be used within the instructional framework (opening, work session, close), and the purposeful moves required to orchestrate an effective closing session. 

  • Identify ways in which rich tasks can be used as formative assessment to monitor student growth. 

  • Connect conceptual learning and application, and the role they play in modeling with mathematics.
