This station activity promotes active learning and movement in the classroom while reinforcing the C-E-R framework. Use this station activity in order to chunk the revision process and strengthen your students writing skills with peers and get students moving in the classroom. Using stations, a teacher can also pin point which area might be a class's weak point, and provide additional help at that particular station. Teachers can also use the activity for targeted assistant for students needing additional assistance.

Stations allow your students to focus intensely on a single task for a short period of time.

Included in this are two student handouts, station cards, station directions, how to use, and letter to the teacher.

Station 1: Thesis Statement

Students often struggle with writing a strong thesis statement. This station allows students to collaborate with their peers in order to strengthen and construct the strongest thesis for their essay.

Station 2: Claim

Claims, or topic sentences, help students organize their writing and major points. In this station students look for all claims in their essay and determine if they are strong and relevant to their thesis.

Station 3: Evidence

Evidence is where students pull support from the text or media to support their claims. In this station, students make sure that their evidence is strong for their essay and collaborate with peers to determine if stronger evidence in the text exists to support their claim.

Station 4: Commentary

Commentary is where students expand on their claim and justify how their evidence indicates their claim. This is where many students get stuck summarizing the events of the text. Using this station, students can analyze their essays to determine if they are merely summarizing or giving meaningful commentary.

Station 5: Conclusion

Conclusions are often overlooked as a restatement of the introduction. In this station, students will make sure that they have a mic-drop moment in their essay.

This activity is suitable for grades 9-12. This is a NON-EDITABLE document.
