PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Performance tasks make learning fun! They give students the opportunity to become actively involved rather than being passive receptors of lecture. With good resource materials, a meaningful task, and a good rubric, performance tasks can be the thing that helps students to get up before the alarm just to get to school and work. Parents can become involved, work can be displayed and shared, and students can proudly boast of what they have accomplished.

It is always important to begin with standards and what you want the students to achieve. Once these have been determined, there are a myriad of ways to turn them into performance tasks. The ideas listed below have been tried successfully and are just waiting for your adaptations. Remember that they can be used across the curriculum, at all grade levels and for different levels of achievers. Don't limit yourself when applying them to your classroom!

You are so welcome. I've always loved performance tasks because they so totally get away from lecture and involve students directly. I hope they've given you some new ideas.

Hi Jeanne. I just purchased Performance Tasks That Make Learning Fun and Assessment Easy, however I can't get the document to download. I haven't had problems with any other TpT purchases. Do you have any suggestions? Thanks so much! Karen

No, I don't understand what has happened; I'm really sorry. If you will email me at rjguthrie@kc.rr.com, I will send you the lesson. I apologize for any inconvenience. I'm not very technically astute, but I have sold the lesson before, so please let me mail it to you.
