A CHOICE BOARD offers students a way to make decisions about what they will do in order to meet class requirements. A choice board could be for a single lesson, a week-long lesson, or even a month-long period of study. In order to create a choice board:
- Identify the most important elements of a lesson or unit.
- Create a required assignment or project that reflects the minimum understanding you expect all students to achieve.
- Create negotiables which expand upon the minimum understands. These negotiables often require students to go beyond the basic levels of Bloom's Taxonomy.
- Create a final optional section that requires students the opportunity for enrichment. The optional section often reflects activities that students can use for extra credit.
