3 Acts

This year I’ve been introduced to 3 Act Tasks.  What’s a 3 Act task?  It was formulated by Dan Meyer.  First, there’s a video/picture that introduces a problem (Act 1).  Next, there’s a few clues that give a little more context to the problem(Act 2).  Students then have to construct/craft a solution path themselves.  Act 3 is the big reveal–the answer.

Since being introduced to them, I wanted to create and share my own.  This is only the beginning as my mind is always working on ideas.

Please remember that this page is a work in progress.  You can also download my videos from Vimeo.
