Course Description: Do you want to increase engagement and rigor in your classroom with learning experiences that will meet the needs of all of your learners?

They used these observations to create a rubric and cube to assist teachers in creating and evaluating the rigor involved in learning tasks. This book will provide you with hands-on experience with engaging tasks that have been used with real kids in real classrooms.
