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.
