FOLDER OF STATIONS (7)
Here's how we plan to work through the day:
- Group 1 will start at the "teacher time" station and get an opportunity to begin their day going over the problems in a small-group setting. These are going to be the students with the highest needs in hopes that the time with the teacher will kickstart their day.
- Group 2 will start with some "Level 2 or 3" problems. Since the group will not make it back to the teacher (there are only 4 rotations of 11 minutes each), there is a self-correcting guide at the bottom of the page.
- Group 3 will start with seeing linear inequalities in a visual format, connecting situations and descriptions to the appropriate graphs, then writing out the linear inequality to match.
- Group 4 will start with a Desmos Activity Builder to go deeper with inequalities and dive into the Domain. We are hoping this gives our high flyers and struggling learners a chance to make some connections.
- Group 5 will start with a PearDeck activity that allows them to articulate their reasoning and describe the graphs by typing them into the prompts.
- Group 6 will start with a card sort, matching the problem to the table to the solution to the graph, then explaining how each of them match up. These are intended to be more difficult, but with reasonably-graph-able solutions.
- Group 7 will start with a domino puzzle to assemble, creating an opportunity for another self-check station since many of the groups who get here will have time to meet with the teacher as well. These are intended to be somewhat difficult and that way the teacher can support in the next station.
There you have it. If you do stations with your students at the secondary level, I would love to hear what you do to make them meaningful!
Happy "Station Creation" Fishing
