Abstract
Task-based learning is an instructional method in which students complete coherently-structured activities in order to meet objectives set by the educator. This thesis illustrates learning communities as the ideal environment for a task-based learning classroom. It discusses the teacherís role in a task-based classroom. This paper also describes three examples of tasks performed in my high school geometry classroom along with my observations of studentsí interactions and discussions.
