dc.description.abstract The purpose of this project is to acquaint the chemistry teachers with performance tasks as efficient tools for engaging students in constructive learning of chemistry and for promoting their problem solving skills. A performance task is an assignment designed in a special way to provide students with the practice, rehearsal, and appropriate challenge to evidence competency in the skills and knowledge considered important by the curriculum (Area Education Agency 267, 2004). They require active student engagement, balanced teacher intervention, and authentic problem situations that enable students to make connections between what is taught in school and the real world (Area Education Agency 267, 2004; Hibbard, 2004). This project will explain, discuss, and illustrate the construction of meaningful performance tasks addressing different branches of chemistry i.e. analytical, organic, physical, and applied chemistry. Since the association between school chemistry and the surrounding world is strongly emphasized in the Lebanese new curriculum, the project is intended to have fruitful pedagogical implications on chemical education in Lebanon. Performance tasks are expected to particularly serve the currently implemented competency- based evaluation system. en_US
