Product Description

This fun learning stations activity "progressive dinner"™ asks students to view or read nonfiction and poetry texts that connect to Trevor Noah's Born a Crime. This fun reading stations activity is hands-on and interactive, a great way to spice up your unit!

I use this activity to help students make text-to-text connections and facilitate reading and discussion of supplementary texts for Born a Crime. There are 25 different text options to use at progressive dinner™ stations. Students rotate from station-to-station, taking notes on a paper plate. Before leaving for the day, they reflect on what they learned and, if you wish to extend their learning, they can use the "writing" menu of options for written response to the text(s).


Here’s what you’ll receive in this resource:

Directions and Pacing Slideshow, Google Slides & PowerPoint Versions (one for use with paper plate handouts and one for use with actual paper plates)

(6 Slides x Two Versions) so that you're able to give students clear expectations for this activity and keep pace along the way. Feel free to customize directions and swap out timers for your own classroom use.
