What will the stations look like? Teacher will not be monitoring, but will be actively working with a group of students based on their current needs. Students working in other stations could: o Review or practice material taught in a prior lesson o Work on an on-going assignment or project (group or individual) o Digital device station for practice o Students should not be expected to learn new material on their own in a non-teacher-led station unless : It is presented in a “flipped” instructional video It is presented as an introduction for a new unit to spark interest
The Power of the Teacher-Led Station YOU are the key factor in this station. Getting to know your students in this small group is powerful and helps to build a great foundation for class management. Seeing your students as a group prohibits you from knowing them as individuals* McDonald, Emma. "The Secret Weapon: Getting to Know Your Students."Educationworld.com. Education World, 2012.

The Power of the Teacher-Led Station In the teacher led groups I am blown away by the depth of the discussions and the participation I rarely see in whole class instruction. I feel I get to know my students on a more personal level. They feel safe and seem to ask for help more often than not when they are in a group led by me. –Zurich Before, I always thought “I need four of me to teach this lesson and provide feedback to each student.” When I have them in small groups they know they will get my attention at some point during the lesson. I don’t feel so torn to be everywhere. -Patterson
