She's at the age where she wants to decide on things. I found that giving them an option of 2 things I wanted them to do worked as they were still making a decision but didn't realize that it was still something I wanted them to do.
You need to be firm and not back down when they have a tantrum. Walk away and ignore it as they are just after attention (good or bad). The more you try and calm them down or get them to do what they don't want to do the longer the tantrum will last. Once they have calmed down get down to their level and talk calmly about what they did wrong and what they need to do.

Then its time to do hand over hand to get her to do them, time outs, or not letting her have what she wants.
