Thinking about the ASSIGNMENTS we give our students and what that says about our EXPECTATIONS.

I'm preparing a deep dive into the Assignments (tasks, problems) we give our students.  I'm reading about a study done in middle school, not on math assignments, that finds assignments since the new standards came along have been given only a "window dressing" with a superficial level of standards implementation.  This is my fear.  If that's in literacy-based classes, how much more is it happening in math class!?
