Transcript of Task Rotation

Task Rotation Provides teachers with a classroom- friendly framework for differentiating teaching and learning Different Styles of Tasks Mastery Task Ask students to
remember and describe Example:
Draw a flowering plant and label its parts Understanding Task ask students to reason and explain Example:
Why are plants important to our world? Think of three reasons Self-Expressive Tasks ask students to imagine and create Example:
How would you feel on a sunny (or rainy) day, if you were a plant? Interpersonal Tasks ask students to explore feelings and relate personally Example:
What would our world look like if there were no plants? Why this strategy works... All learning styles are equally important and will be used by every learner, however, people usually develop preferences
If a child's preferred style is neglected, in a classroom, they will likely disengage from new learning. This can produce unmotivated and uncomfortable students.
Through task rotation, teachers can achieve several goals:
Increasing the depth of student learning
Improving the quality of student thinking How to Use this Strategy: 1. Make sure students are familiar with the four learning styles. 2. Introduce the four tasks and explain the students' roles 3. Inform students whether they will be working alone, with partners, or in cooperative groups. 4. Circulate the room while students are working. 5. Conduct a class discussion Planning a Task Rotation 1. Collect your standards
2. Identify your purpose
What do I want students to KNOW?
What do I want students to UNDERSTAND?
What SKILLS do I want students to develop?
What ATTITUDES do I want to foster in students?
3. Design tasks for all four learning styles
4. Create a "hook" to pique students' interest and activate prior knowledge
5. Develop criteria for success
