Reflection: How'd he do that? Memoir Style Stations - Section 3: Memoir Stations


I always worry when doing stations that my students who are less than motivated will not use their time well. While there were definitely elements of off task behavior in my classes today, I was able to steer folks back to their reading pretty easily. These texts are very engaging and I think kinds enjoyed them. Their written work is varied, but it typically is.  I am curious to see how the past few days will impact their narrative writing process. This will help me to determine if it is worth spending more than one day on this in the future.
