Performance Tasks

NextLesson Performance Tasks offer many of the same benefits as Project-Based Learning (PBL): beginning with a context and reason for the learning, requiring higher-order thinking skills, and preparing students for the real world. As a result, it can be useful to transition from a structured Performance Task into a full PBL unit.
