The America Achieves Educator Networks works to increase the number of students who have access to and complete a quality education pathway that leads to career and life success.
The goals of the resources on this page are to describe the process used to develop high-quality, career-ready performance tasks and share design principles to help others imagine and build capacity for similar work.
UPDATE - see below for example tasks designed by Colorado Educator Voice Fellows!
This full-length guide includes detailed steps for creating and implementing performance tasks, and related resources and tools. UPDATE - exemplars for the “Small Business, Big Impact” task can be found on slide 18.
The performance tasks below are meant to serve as examples to help educators better understand the knowledge, skills, dispositions, and character traits needed for career success, as well as approaches to project-based learning and capstone design to support such learning. Each can serve as a valuable foundation for educators, who are encouraged to adapt the tasks to fit the needs of their students, schools, and communities.
