Rigorous Task

Value Proposition/Description

For schools with administrators, coaches, and teachers who are seeking to support more autonomy within student teams. This training will teach participants to prepare a task that requires students to coach each other through productive struggle in order to meet the Learning Target. Teachers will learn that a Rigorous Task is structured to give students the time and structures necessary to implement all the teaming skills they have developed throughout the progression.

As a result of this session, participants will be able to:

  • Create a Rigorous Task with necessary aligned components
  • Create a plan to monitor, verify, and support students
  • Predict and plan Micro-interventions

Supportive Accountability

  • Refer to the Technique & Resources notebook
  • Use the tips and resources in Teacher Prep, Student Readiness, Student Use, and Teacher Verify to plan a lesson that includes these phases
  • Use the “Planning a Lesson” template
