Performance Tasks

Big Idea/Essential Questions

The performance task is based upon the G.R.A.S.P.S. template utilized as part of the “Understanding by Design” framework. The task can guide instruction and allow the educator to serve as facilitator or the task can serve as an activity that allows students to demonstrate understandings through relevant utilization of standards-based content, concepts, and skills. Performance tasks are aligned with Essential Questions and associated Big Ideas that consider student knowledge and understanding.
