Previous Post: Task Menus are just one resource that can be used to address the different levels and learning styles in the classroom. Each task is based on the elements of multiple intelligences: verbal/linguistic, logical/mathematical, visual/spatial, interpersonal, choice, body kinesthetic, musical/rhythmic, naturalist, and intrapersonal.
Students may choose the task they wish to do. They cannot move on to another task until there has been a conference about their completed task.
Students also evaluate their work on a scale of 1 (minimum work), 2(satisfactory work), 3 (Outstanding Work), 4 (Quality Work)
