Reflection: Station Rotation Advertising Analysis Day 2 - Section 2: Work Stations- Print Ads


For this activity, there were a few variables I had to consider when establishing groups and designing how the station rotations would best fit. I had limited access to laptops in my classroom at this time, and did not feel the computer lab was an appropriate place for the overall activity, so I began to think about what it could look like. The thing that kept resonating for me as I thought was that not all tasks would take equal time to complete. It could take longer for a particular student or group of students to process one ad or another, or the kids could need more time when watching one of the online/television advertisements, which require the students to watch more than once in order to really begin to see everything within them. I couldn't have the laptop groups be forced to follow the same timing rotation as those analyzing print ads at the time. 

In order to make this work, I had to be very flexible with how the rotations take place and monitor the progress very carefully throughout.
