Rich Learning Tasks

  1. 1. A COMPARISON OF RICH LEARNING TASKS AND TRADITIONAL TASKS This chart appears in Teaching With Rich Learning Tasks: A Handbook, 2003 written by Gary Flewelling with William. The book has caused me much reflection about tasks my learners are asked to do in my classroom. Chapters include an examination of what makes a task relevant, why relevance is such a critical issue, and tools to judge the richness of any learning task. The authors suggest ten essential conditions for learning that need to be in place in a classroom before learners can meaningfully and productively engage in learning. This chart is posted above my desk to continually nudge me towards designing more meaningful activities which will engage my learners.
