Tic Tack Toe
- Students choose three product options that form a horizontal, vertical, or diagonal line.
- Students choose one product choice from each row or from each column (without forming a straight line).
- The teacher can create two or more versions to address the different readiness levels.
In the example below, a high-school teacher creates a Tic-tac-toe assignment for a unit on Romeo and Juliet. The teacher wants the students to complete assignments for three categories: characters, setting, and theme. Notice that the teacher creates three assignments for each of these categories, resulting in a total of nine tasks from which students can choose.
Directions: Complete one activity from each row.
|Write an essay comparing and contrasting yourself to one of the major characters.||Create a list of at least five interview questions to ask Romeo or Juliet about what the reader should learn from their experiences. Create an audio including the questions and answers.||Now that you’ve read Romeo and Juliet and watched Westside Story, create a play that contains these two major characters and is set in modern times.|
|Choose your favorite scene and describe how the setting affects the mood of the play.||Choose your favorite scene and create a detailed scaled model of it.||Choose your favorite scene and write an essay describing the differences in the settings of Romeo and Juliet and Westside Story.|
