Reflection: Station Rotation Unit Review Stations - Section 2: Review Stations

I decided to use students’ data from the quiz during “Show what you know + Equivalency” to create homogeneous groups of 3-4 students.  I created a powerpoint slide with the groups and students wrote down their group members.  Then I had students clear off their desks and move them into groups.  I gave students 30 seconds to find their group members and find a place to sit.  I passed out a Group Work Rubric for each group.  I evaluated groups on the rubric about every 7 minutes.  By spreading out my feedback, it kept students working for an extended amount of time in order to earn their group work grade for the day.

As far as station rotation, I had each group work at their own pace.  So groups stayed at their own desks, instead of rotating.  When they completed a page, they raised their hands.  I quickly scanned the work and determined whether or not they were ready to check their work and move on.  When students were ready they got up to check their work and get the next review worksheet.  Having students working in homogeneous groups allowed me to check in more effectively with students who were still struggling.  At the end of the period, I passed around staplers so students could staple their do now with their review worksheets.
