Do you think that more emphasis should be placed on vocabulary study? Here is Something Different to Try in place of the usual vocabulary assignments. This menu study extends learning and retention through activities based on Bloom’s Taxonomy, Gardner’s Multiple Intelligences, Creative Productive Thinking, and Sandra Kaplan’s Depth and Complexity icons. It allows for differentiation for all students through Pace, Process, and Product Choice and can be used as an alternate assignment or an extension for all levels. You can use it as a tic-tac-toe board, assign a required number of activities, or allow free choice.
Try it. You and your students just might like it.
