Reflection: Real World Applications Does She Have Enough? - Section 2: Task


I feel that it is important to expose the students to real-world problems.  It gives the students a sense of why the skill is important to them.  A lot of times we, as teachers, just teach a skill but never make it relevant to the lives of the students.  I find that tasks gives me the opportunity to make it relevant to the students through real world scenarios.  I find that when the students understand the importance of the lesson, they put more effort into learning the skill.
