The Differentiated Classroom
Responding to the Needs of All Learners
While implementing a differentiated classroom, it is important that the teacher is the leader. Together, the teacher and students plan sometimes as a whole class and sometimes as an individual to set goals, monitor the progress throughout, analyze the success each student has, as well as the failures, and seek different ways to make the failures a success. This allowed for me to understand how to structure and implement a Choice Board within my classroom.
Choice Boards are well suited to dealing with readiness and interest differences among students. While using a Choice Board, students are to make a selection from various assignments which the teacher has targeted as a skill that is important for the student to practice. During the use of a Choice Board, students are provided with full instructions on the assignment which the student had a choice of choosing.
