What are Menus?
Choice menus are a way of allowing students to choose how they would like to satisfy their “intellectual” hunger. The idea of a menu at the very least is a list of choices that students use to select an activity (or activities) they would like to complete to show their learning. At the very most, it is a complex system where students are given point goals and complete different products to earn points (which are based on the levels of Bloom’s revised taxonomy).
Virtual Menu Bank
I have been collecting menus that I have used in my classroom or teachers have sent me with the goal of sharing them with others.
I have started a different page where these menus are located and ready for your perusal.
If you have a menu you are willing to share, please e-mail it to me at Laurie@giftedconsultant.com and I will add it to the shared menu page!
