3 Act Tasks

 

What’s a 3 Act task? It was originally formulated by Dan Meyer. First, there’s a video/picture that introduces a
problem (Act 1). Next, there’s a few clues that give a little more context to the problem (Act 2). Students then have
 to construct/craft a solution path themselves. Last is the big reveal–the answer (Act 3).
