Student Choice Boards are a great way to differentiate instruction and give students some control over their learning. I have found that the interest level in my classroom goes through the roof when I allow my students to choose their activities and work with a partner (or small group) on these choice boards. There are many different ways you can use these boards with your students. Some teachers use them as tic-tac-toe boards and have students choose three connecting activities. Others give students a set number of activities and let them choose whatever they want. Another option would be to assign a certain activity as a “must – do” activity and then allow students to choose an additional activity based on their own interests. These student choice boards are also excellent for homework or home-based projects.
