Resources: Whatever resources you need for the variety of activities you are offering. What to do: Lay out the classroom like a restaurant! Tables can be in pairs? Groups? But have banqueting paper on the tables. And Paper plates. Students to then be handed a menu! The menu should contain: 3 Starters/Mains/Desserts- Extra Hot/ Medium/ Mild
Extra Hot- High Ability Medium- Middle Ability Mild- Low Ability The aim of the lesson is for students to have complete choice of their tasks. They should pick the tasks based on their current/target levels. The tasks- should be the same- but differentiated in Chilli order. The tasks themselves are totally up to you- can be for any subject/any age. The aim is choice. Get students to write on the banqueting paper. Use the Paper plates to write on too. Involve numeracy by putting a price next to each of the activities and ask students to pay for the amount they have completed. Variations: Students can create meals for each others- create their own menus? The Teacher doesn’t have to play the role of the waiter- they could play the role of the restaurant owner. So instead of handing out the menus- other students can do this… and the teacher just facilitates the waiter in ensuring all the customers are happy/on track!
