Time to study

I decided to study the problem of how to pass from a lesson-based classes to task-based classes. I realized that I need books, articles or some kind of information which provides me the “theory” of how to transform my classes into task-based ones.

For now, I bought “5 Practices for Orchestrating Productive Mathematics Discussions” [2] and “5 Practices for Orchestrating Productive Task-Based Discussions in Science” [1] of National Council of Teachers of Mathematics. I hope these books give me the ideas that I need.
