Choice Boards/ Choice Menus------ Differentiation at its BEST!
With any project that is completed at home over a two or three week block of time, students may procrastinate. To avoid a family melt down the night before due date, have students fill out a step by step planner to spread out the work and to anticipate the scope of the work. You may want to type up the steps, and the student writes the date next to each step. Also discuss the rubric, which often is the same for a number of the choices. You may create a separate rubric for the project presentation. Periodically, I check in with students on the progress they have made. The project is completed and the excitement is palpable when the projects arrive in the classroom. Students talk about what they have learned and emphasize the intricacies of their creation. I often have the table groups share to accommodate the time crunch.

I am really loving my black and white photo collage going up my stairs. I made a very short video tour!
