Westphal, an independent gifted education and science consultant, helps teachers of grades three through five create student-centered inclusive classrooms by using five different menus from which lower, on-level, and English language learners can select products they will develop (such as puzzles, posters, timelines, dioramas, plays, and interviews) so teachers can assess what they have learned in social studies. She addresses the importance of choice and the benefits, limitations, and time considerations for tic-tac-toe, list, 2-5-8, three shape, and baseball menus; how to use them in classrooms; different types of products; and assessment guidelines and expectations, as well as general and student presentation rubrics. Topics include ancient history, American history, government, US documents, people in history, and geography, with objectives, materials, time frame, forms, and guidelines for assessment for each menu. The book complements others in the series meant for use with on-level, advanced, and gifted students. There is no index. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
