## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Review Stations - Section 2: Review Stations

Using stations to review for tests accomplishes several objectives: it focuses the class on the relevant content, allows for a positive, active, and interactive classroom environment, and it provides a last opportunity for the students and me to pinpoint areas of concern. I find that this structure is most helpful when I group like problems into each station. Each station focuses on one specific idea, demonstrated with several examples: conceptual understandings, simplifying expressions, solving equations, graphing functions, exploring inverses, and applying knowledge to concrete scenarios.

This kind of organization allows me to pose ‘experts’ at strategic locations (including myself) who can provide helpful feedback and even re-teach some topics if necessary. It also allows students to assess their own understanding and direct their studies for the evening (e.g. “I really understand what all this stuff means (conceptual understanding), but I have some difficulties when solving equations. I’d better practice a few more tonight.”)
