Reflection: Station Rotation Giving and Receiving Revision Feedback - Section 3: Giving and Receiving Feedback with Revision Love Notes


If I asked my non-honors classes to complete the revision love notes this way, there would be confusion, balking, and then mayhem.  If you're into that, I'd suggest skipping this and just skip to banging your head against the wall.  You'll get the same result, but you'll get there quicker.  Ten good head bangs should do it.


You could use stations and use station rotation.  One station could focus on main ideas and details, where students would write letters about the main ideas the author is expressing.  Another station could be craft and structure. That station would require students to examine how the author uses figurative language.  A third station could be for presentation, including conventions.  Does the poem look like a poem?  Are words spelled correctly?  Students would then rotate through the stations and write separate love moves for each station.


You could pair students up and ask them to write three separate paragraphs for their partner.  One paragraph would be about what the author is telling them, one paragraph about craft and structure, and one paragraph about presentation.


You could create a small group that works with you or a co-teacher for those students who need extra extra help.


Instead of having students write paragraphs, you could give students (some or all) a checklist and then have them write one paragraph.
