The new thing I'm trying, courtesy of my friends Graham Fletcher, Michael Wiernicki and Turtle Gunn are 3 Act Tasks. I started with the Apple's Solar Farm task, shared in a previous post and since then I've been on a bit of a snowball effect. I've created five more tasks which can be found on https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Are6h0vMbntddGVlQkE2VzgyZkdJb3NBWWwtamhJQXc&usp=docslist_api. These tasks will soon be found on www.101qs.com. Not many coaches in my district have made the shift to this innovative teaching practice that I have. That's one of the many benefits of having friends that challenge you.
