Task Rotation: Strategies for Differentiating Activities and Assessments by Learning Style. A Strategic Teacher PLC Guide
Silver, Harvey; Moirao, Daniel; Jackson, Joyce
One of the hardest jobs in teaching is to differentiate learning activities and assessments to your students' learning styles. But you and your colleagues can learn how to do this together when each of you has this guide to the Task Rotation strategy from our ultimate guide to teaching strategies, "The Strategic Teacher". Use the guide in your Professional Learning Community to explore how Task Rotation enables you to scaffold student learning and conduct assessments that are appropriate to the four major learning styles: Mastery, Understanding, Self-Expressive, and Interpersonal. Activities from the guide help you and your colleagues: (1) Examine a range of teacher-designed Task Rotations; (2) Experience model Task Rotations and learn from sample lessons and planning forms designed by other teachers; (3) Design a Task Rotation for your own classroom; and (4) Examine student work at various levels of proficiency and use your findings to plan next steps.
