Background For Teachers:
Before beginning, the teacher should put students into four different groups according to their needs and level of understanding (e.g., one advanced group, two medium groups, and one group with students who need more instruction and practice). I put students names on business card magnets (so I can use and rearrange them all year) and put them on the board under the station that they will be starting at. The following stations can be used as four rotations in one day or two one day and two the next.
Also, stations should be generally be self-correcting so that the teacher
is freed up to work with the teacher team station. Answer sheets could be made
available so that when students are finished, they can check their own work.
This requires a high-level of trust and an independent-working classroom atmosphere
that must be established prior to doing stations.
Intended Learning Outcomes:
Many patterns emerge in history and students could look for patterns and make
connections in their study of America. This could lead to written reports or
graphic organizers showing the repeating patterns.
If stations are used frequently, students could then turn in their logs to
you every week or every other week for you to look over and evaluate. The best
assessment often comes from the actual “working out” of the problems
and the notes taken while completing the various station requirements.
