As this historical school year begins to wind down, join us to better understand how Choice Boards can be utilized to add simplicity and efficiency to these final few weeks of school. This session series will explore ways teachers can utilize choice boards as part of the end of year review and curriculum exploration. We will consider different formats for choice boards and how they can be used for practice and/or assessment. Over the duration of this series, participants will build choice board(s) for use in their classrooms. Sessions will be recorded and shared with registered participants.
