Book Description

Differentiating Instruction With Menus for the Inclusive Classroom: Language Arts for grades K-2 offers teachers everything needed to create a student-centered learning environment based on choice. This book provides seven different types of menus that students can use to select exciting products that they will develop so teachers can assess what has been learned—instead of using a traditional worksheet format. Topics addressed include genres, books, and mechanics.

Differentiating Instruction With Menus for the Inclusive Classroom: Language Arts provides numerous types of leveled menus that lower and on-level primary-age students can use to select exciting products to demonstrate learning. Menus with similar formats but geared toward varying ability levels allow teachers to differentiate easily. Using the creative and challenging choices found in Meal menus, Tic-Tac-Toe menus, Target-Based List menus, 2-5-8 menus, Give Me 5 menus, Three-Shape menus, and Pick 3 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. This is a must-have for any teacher wanting to differentiate for a wide range of learners!
