Laurie Westphal experienced academic concepts in the same manner as other students-through the use of chapter reading and questions, and copying notes. After questioning this practice, she decided to break the mold when she entered the classroom as a teacher. She was given the freedom to develop engaging, product-based lessons and activities, which encouraged choice, the kind of teaching she missed as a student.

By Laurie E. Differentiated instruction, project-based learning, and multiple learning styles are just a few of the K-12 buzz words dealing with science teaching. Are you frustrated with the over-whelming amount of theories and teaching methods and wonder how you can ever do it all? This book deals with differentiating instruction using menus in science for grades 3-5 and aligns with the Common Core State Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Menus allow students to choose what to concentrate on during a lesson.

Differentiating Instruction With Menus: Math (Grades 3-5). Laurie Westphal has created a fantastic collection of resources for a number of subject areas and grades using menus. Our final pick is by no mean the end of the line for resources on differentiated instruction, but this is certainly a must-have for those who are looking for ways to engage their learners in mathematics. Menus are economies of learning that include learner choice and preference. Menus are based in evidence and encourage learners to engage increasingly more critically with the subject material.

It should be noted that Prufrock Press, this book’s publishing company, is known for offering resources for gifted and advanced learners

Differentiating Instruction With Menus offers teachers everything they need to create a student-centered learning environment based on choice. Addressing the four main subject areas (language arts, math, science, and social studies) and the major concepts taught within these areas, these books provide a number of different types of menus that elementary-aged 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.Each book contains attractive reproducible menus, each based on the levels of Bloom's revised taxonomy, for students to use to guide them in making decisions as to which products they will develop after studying a major concept or unit. Using creative and challenging choices found in Tic-Tac-Toe Menus, List Menus, 2-5-8 Menus, Baseball Menus, and Game Show 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 book includes menus that teach students about ancient history, American history, government, U.S. documents, people in history, and geography.

Many ideas on differentiation using menus with structure. Kids should have experience with activities or teacher must structure properly. Remember if you have 9 different activities going on at once, and kids have not been exposed to those, you will be faced with lots of questions.You can modify to fit your needs. Minimize choices to get feel for kaos it will bring. Remember chaos not always a bad thing. The ideas here rather than go full menu to start. Better for veteran teachers I think but can be helpful to any high will/skill teacher. I do like what I see and have begun to implement ideas. Helpful for sure. I recommend it.

I incorporated the menu ideas at the end of the school year for a MN social studies project. Each child choose what they wanted to based off the menus I provided. One child preformed a rap, one made a game, several made posters, some power points, others colleagues. So it was great for student choice and they choose what their strengths were and showcased that.

The choices in this book are valuable for differentiation. It lists the topic and choice boards, or other activities to scaffold the learning. This was a useful purchase for the classroom.

There is not much for sixth grade in here (Ancient Civilizations). There is mostly American history which is great for eighth and high school teachers.

I teach middle school (world civ and US hist) and this is very generic, I expected to find more tailored rubrics.
