Overview

Differentiating Instruction With Menus: Middle School Edition offers teachers everything they need to create a student-centered learning environment based on choice. Addressing the four main subject areas (language arts, math, science, and social studies) and the major concepts taught within these areas, these books provide a number of different types of menus that middle school students can use to select exciting products that they will develop so that teachers can assess what has been learned-versus using a traditional worksheet format. Each book contains attractive reproducible menus, each based on the levels of Bloom's Revised taxonomy, for students to use to guide themselves in making decisions as to which products they will develop after studying a major concept or unit. Using creative and challenging choices found in Tic-Tac-Toe Menus, List Menus, 2-5-8 Menus, Baseball Menus, and Game Show Menus, students will look forward to sharing their newfound knowledge throughout the year. Also included are specific guidelines for products, rubrics for assessing student products, and teacher introduction pages for each menu.
