Antonetti and Stice turn the bubble-sheet culture on its head— offering readers a path for implementing rigorous and engaging tasks that promote meaning-making and sustained learning. Through Powerful Task Design, they provide a way of thinking about our main goal in the classroom—creating rigorous and engaging tasks that power up learning. I love this book! The cognitive demand, thinking strategies, and engaging qualities of this book WILL change the way I interact with my own learners . . . and my two small children.
