I saw more vividly than ever how crucial was the teacher's role. And my entrancement with teaching grew. In this volume, Stein, Smith, Henningsen, and Silver offer some of the resources for teachers to learn what I only just began to grasp then, and that I have been learning ever since. I began to appreciate that year how much what we call "teaching" depends on the quality of the work offered to students, how they interpret and respond to tasks, and how the teacher mediates their Page xii interpretations and responses.
In our work with teachers in the QUASAR Project, we discovered the importance of matching tasks with goals for student learning. Take for example the case of Mr. Johnson (Silver & Smith, 1996). Mr. Johnson wanted his students to learn to work collaboratively, to discuss alternative approaches to solving tasks, and to justify their solutions. , expressing ratios such as 15/25 in lowest terms) provided little, if any, opportunity for collaboration, exploration of multiple solution strategies, or meaningful justification.
For example, both tasks A and D require an explanation or description yet Task A is considered high-level (doing mathematics) and Task D is considered low-level (procedures without connections). Alternatively, both Tasks A and C are considered doing mathematics, yet they differ with respect to the use of manipulatives, a "real-world" context, and the use of a diagram. Whether our tasks are chosen as the basis for a sorting activity, new tasks are created for this purpose, or some combination of tasks is used, it is important to vary tasks with respect to a range of features across categories of cognitive demand.
