Implementing Stations In A Secondary Classroom: How to Use Them for Reading & Writing

August 19, 2016

Stations are an excellent opportunities for incorporating movement and collaboration into learning in the classroom. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed using stations for reading and writing activities as well as collaborative versus independent station work, assessing student learning, and managing student behavior during station work. Read through the chat for ideas to implement in your own classroom.
This #2ndaryELA Twitter chat was all about stations, also known as rotations or centers. Middle school and high school English Language Arts teachers discussed using stations for reading and writing activities as well as collaborative versus independent station work, checking for understanding, and managing student behavior during station work.

Read through the chat below for ideas on using stations in conjunction with reading: pre-reading, close reading, analysis of character, or for ideas on using stations in conjunction with writing: brainstorming, editing, revising. You'll find ways to assess student learning such as written reflection, group discussion, or sometimes a simple checklist. You'll also learn how to keep students on task with tips like using a timer, setting clear norms, and circulating the room.

Hope you'll join us next Tuesday August 23rd at 8pm EST to talk about using young adult literature in the classroom. We'd also love for you to join our 2ndaryELA Facebook group (even if you aren't on Twitter).
