Transforming tasks strategy: from tell to ask

Tasks are presented as following a ‘before and after’ approach, demonstrating how to move from telling a student the way to complete a problem to posing a question that incorporates more of a problem-solving approach. A reflection of why and how provides rationale and benefits for student learning.
