An example of a student choice menu that has students chose one item from each "course". I've been working with a teacher lately who has struggled with her students completing a summative paper in her class. This trimester, we're working together to find a way to increase buy in and hopefully have a higher percentage of students complete the project. While investigating options for her, the first thing that came to mind was using a choice board or learning menu to enable her students to select the method that would work best for them rather than prescribing a multimedia project. There are a wide range of ways that you can put choice boards in to action. Tic-Tac-Toe, Menus, Choice Board... there are lots of different words to use to search for them. But the premise for all of them is the same. Give your students a selection of options to chose from and let them go with it.

Hi, Blog Followers! How is it already February?! Kudos to the teacher that asked me for cartoon strip ideas this week. I included my suggestions in this week's slide! Did you know that the tech coaches have been using #bonnyeagle on social media? We're trying to make our messaging more positive and make it easier to see and follow all of the awesome stuff we are doing. Post with the hashtag and see me for your prize! I have a load of goodies to share. (Offer only applies to BMES/BEHS staff. Sorry!) If you'd like to get together to learn about any of these things, plan a lesson together integrating more technology, get some guidance with setting up your GP/HOW check in on Synergy, or get non-evaluative feedback just set up an appointment with me on my website at http://appointment.simmonsclassroom.com And, as always, you can see the tips from the past weeks by clicking on the slide below and then using the arrows to scroll through the other slides in the deck. Sincerely,
In my continuing effort to close some of the many tabs I have open after the last two weeks of in depth professional development meetings, I wanted to share the SolveMe Mobiles math puzzle website that was shared with me during the math workshop we hosted. It is a website offered by Education Development Center, Inc. , who "designs, implements, and evaluates programs to improve education, health, and economic opportunity worldwide." [ source ] The premise is fairly simple. You are given a mobile that has beams balanced under a number. Then you need to use your deduction skills to determine what the values of the different shapes are. The more you answer, the harder they get. There are 164 SolveMe puzzles and then even more available through the community. For students who need to be challenged even more, they can create their own puzzles to post in the SolveMe community. The best thing is that SolveMe Mobiles is completely free and you don't need to create an
