Task Menu for Autumn

October 13, 2009

scarecrow 1After the formal and informal assessments that take place in August and September, the ability levels and the learning styles of the students are now identified. Students have begun to work in groups and stations, and they have been introduced to some basic technology skills.
At this time, I introduce a Task Menu to provide the necessary differentiation. Attached below are the activities, the Task Menu, and the Task Card ( I Can) to place at each station. Students can choose one or more of the activities to complete during station or independent time.
