Differentiating Instruction With Menus for the Inclusive Classroom: Science for grades 6–8 offers teachers who have multiple ability levels in one classroom everything they need to create a student-centered learning environment based on choice. For each topic covered, there are two menus that look similar but contain differentiated content: one menu for students working on grade level and the other for students working below grade level. Using the creative, challenging choices found in Tic-Tac-Toe menus, List menus, 2-5-8 menus, and Game Show menus, students will demonstrate their knowledge with unique, exciting products. Also included are specific guidelines for products, assessment rubrics, and teacher introduction pages for each menu. These menus can also be used in conjunction with the Differentiating Instruction With Menus series (for students working above grade level) for three tiers of complementary menus.

Review by: David Brock, Science Scope - February 1, 2013
All middle school science teachers need a “go-to” resource for their classroom that they can turn to for inspriation, or that they know they can can rely on to provide at least the hope of meaningful instruction on those days when he or she must be absent. This is that resource.
