2. Tasks

Discover how five authentic tasks are introduced, goal driven, and differentiated even though they remain constant throughout the year.


2.1 Student task choice is goal driven.

  • Students use current goals to determine which task to choose each session.
  • Teacher confers with students to assist in making a good-fit choice when necessary

2.2 I-charts for each task

  • All tasks are launched using the 10 Steps to Teaching and Learning Independence.
  • I-charts for each task are posted in the room for student access.

2.3 Differentiate tasks according to students' needs.

  • Teacher provides Daily 5 task options that fit the needs of students and schedules.
  • PreK-3 students typically have all five options, whereas students in grades 4-12 have one to five.

2.4 Tasks remain constant throughout the year.

  • The Daily 5 tasks are the same and do not change from the beginning of the year to the end of the year, but the content covered within each task will grow with the student.
