stations of the classroom

I'm trying something new with my students. I've set up editing stations around the room. They enter, collect their yellow folder, then journey to a station with specific revising tasks on them. They get ten minutes at each station then move to the next. I've never tried this kind of task system so we'll see how it goes! I'm kind of excited to have them revise and edit their papers based on the specific editing tasks. Fingers crossed!

ETA: Stations of the Class was a success! Not only did the students work productively, they liked having specific tasks to accomplish. Some of them were able to add another page of text to their essays! I will definitely use this strategy with other classes.

This sounds like an imaginative new approach. Bet switching it up helps keep them engaged.
