Tasks for Learning
This edition of Michigan Gateways examines the kinds of learning
tasks that are favored by today's reform-minded educators.

help guide the selection of tasks for student learning. Featured
are comments from Dr. Joe Krajcik, University of Michigan and Dr.
Deborah Ball, Michigan State University. Dr. Krajcik is a co-
director of the NSF-funded Project-Based Science program. Dr. Ball
was a contributing author to the 1991 NCTM document, Professional

charts and graphs as part of their introduction to statistics.
