A-State ERZ Hosts Webinar Series On Powerful Task Design
John Antonetti has taught A.P Chemistry and Kindergarten and most grades in between in his home state of Arkansas. Once described by Larry Lezotte as a “teacher’s teacher,” Mr. Antonetti works with schools across the country and Canada on student engagement, writing, rigor and relevance, and high–yield best practices. While hands-on work in schools is his passion, John is also a highly–sought keynote speaker. His humor and parables are recognized by teachers, administrators, and parents as relevant examples of the power of teachers.

The answer is D) all of the above. But finding the best balance between the two types of tasks is difficult and most of us were not taught to build task of rigor and high engagement.
