Many teachers use the strategy of student choice to increase engagement, reinforce autonomy, and improve learning outcomes. A reading response choice board is a quick and easy way to provide students with an opportunity to make their own decisions, building a sense of agency with the learning process. Giving students a choice in how they showcase learning is also an effective method for differentiating instruction. All students learn in their own way, and they need to be able to show their individual skills and interests.
