LDC tasks translate the common core literacy standards into what we ask students to do and how we know they can do it. They take the standards from the page into action in the classroom. Template tasks are fill-in-the-blank ?shells? built off of the CCSS. They primarily are used to create high-quality student assignments that develop reading and writing skills in the context of learning science, history, literature or some other element of the middle or high school curriculum. Practitioners adapt template tasks for use in specific classes by filling in the kinds of texts to be read, writing to be produced and content to be addressed. Template tasks can also be used to create shorter classroom assessments that complement larger assignments.
