Assignment In this session, you analyzed different approaches to developing presentational tasks and reflected on the importance of audience to a presentation. You will now write a one- to two-page summary of what you have learned and how you plan to apply it in your classroom. Review the notes you have taken during this session, as well as your answers to the Reflect on Your Experience questions. Use the questions below to guide your writing.
  1. How does the concept of audience influence the design of presentational tasks? Consider an audience that you have not targeted in past classroom activities. How might you address that audience with a future presentational task?
  1. How does having a final product in mind help you plan an activity?
  1. How would you explain the difference between a writing task that serves only to help students achieve an interpretive or interpersonal goal, and writing used as part of a presentational task?
  1. How does a presentational task or product help push students to achieve higher levels of proficiency?
