There is a selection of activities for each subject, many of them repeated as needed
. Once my students knew my expectations and how to do a certain project, they felt more confident and were more successful in choosing the same project in a different topic. Students will be able to use the techniques, strategies, and activities that they are familiar with and transferring them to different topics.
Some of the projects include
~ Create a poster
~ Create an anchor chart
~ Design a computer project
~ Design and create a game
~ Create a 10-question quiz
~ Create a foldable
My students enjoyed being able to find a project that they liked and being able to do that project again. It also saved me time so that I didn't have to reinvent the wheel and teach them new projects each week. It was a win-win for both of us; my students were able to work independently on their projects (without any help from me) while I was able to work with my small groups.
A grading rubric
along with a self evaluation
is also included for you to use in assessing the Choice Boards.
My students loved Choice Boards. My students worked on their Choice Boards while I met with my small groups for reteaching. They loved to be able to choose how they showed me what they know. I even used their posters in my classroom.
