    Default Authentic Tasks

    How do you access authentic tasks in Science for 8th Grade? and What are they? We've just started this year, and I'm not sure what they are at all. Are they like a lab? Can someone help me.

    Hi, Chloemom! The authentic tasks are something other than a recorded lesson. They allow for more independent exploration by your student. Your student clicks on an activity icon to access these tasks, just like any other lesson. Often, there will simply be a link to a webpage to explore inside. You can check your student's reports to be sure they are actually spending time on the website. Information gleaned from these explorations can be used by your student in writing assignments and for general knowledge.
