Teaching with Rich Learning Tasks

A Handbook (Second Edition)

Teaching with Rich Learning Tasks
Gary Flewelling, William Higginson

This excellent book goes beyond the rhetoric to look in detail at rich learning tasks: what makes them “rich”, what makes them important, and what learning, teaching and assessment look like when both students and teachers are engaged in them. It contains a wealth of information and practical advice, along with plenty of examples of tasks and suggestions for how to use and explore the ideas in your own practice.
The text includes detailed discussion of examples, compares rich and pseudo-rich learning tasks, examines problem-solving in the context of sense-making, useful Internet sites, introduces important influential concepts, and more. This second edition includes updated text and five new appendices. While it uses mathematical examples from mainly middle school content, the book would be useful to teachers across disciplines and at all year levels. Highly relevant for teacher education courses.
