Abstract: Teachers design learning tasks as the basis of everyday practice, and their ability to effectively manipulate these tasks dynamically demonstrates how quickly they can respond to changes in student performance with different levels of task complexity. This paper examines the design options for learning tasks in the discipline of history as teachers make the tasks more structured and scaffold their students’ processes so that they can complete each task. The manipulation of five dimensions has been used as part of a professional development program to help teachers vary tasks demands as their students begin to demonstrate competence and self-reliance on their own understanding.
