If you've never facilitated a "question trail," now is the time to try it out! You and your students will be hooked on its unique approach to learning.
A question trail is an activity comprised of different multiple choice “stations” or “spots.” These questions are posted throughout the classroom. At each station, students answer a multiple choice question. Each answer (a, b, c, or d) will send the students to a different station. If students answer each question correctly, they will travel to each station and complete a full circuit. If students answer a question incorrectly, they will eventually find themselves at a station they’ve already completed, which tells them that they need to backtrack. This gives you clear, immediate feedback. You will quickly see who is getting it ("on the trail") vs. who is not ("off the trail").
This question trail includes excerpts from Edgar Allan Poe's short stories and poems.
This includes the following:
-Question Trail (12 questions)
-Student Half-Sheet w/ Exit Ticket (to track answers/reflect on understanding)
Literary devices covered: simile, metaphor, personification, alliteration, imagery, allusion, assonance, antithesis, epithet, onomatopoeia, repetition
ENJOY! :) This is one of my favorite lessons, because it's so student-directed that I can just float around the room and watch the magic happen (helping students when needed, of course).
