Non-Mathematics Performance Tasks
These tasks were created by AAESA teachers in conjunction with the Linda Jordan Performance Tasks Series in 2013-14. The tasks below are not directly math-related, but are excellent examples of performance tasks. These tasks have not been juried or tested in any way at this time. They are DRAFTS only.
