Learning stations are the perfect way to review the ideas and structure of the novel. This set of stations is unusual because you are using poetic devices and structures to analyze the novel. Call it killing two birds with one stone. With a little preparation and careful instructions, students can rotate through several novel based activities with simply a “rotate” from the teacher every 9-10 minutes.
You get 7 literacy stations that you may use for any novel or drama. The stations include engaging lessons about characterization, alliteration, assonance, onomatopoeia, plot, setting, Haiku, concrete poetry, protagonist, antagonist, and the acrostic.
Using stations with older students creates interest and adds engagement to any lesson. A student that was previously listless will sit up and take notice when asked to work as a team to accomplish several tasks in a timely manner. The stations are fast moving and usually produce a product. Upper-level students enjoy the fast pace and high interest of station work. This activity takes a little planning, but when in the process the educational component becomes a student-driven learning experience.
Learning stations require a little preparation. Read the station instructions for the necessary supplies: markers, construction paper, computer paper, scissors, or tape. Each one varies. If a station requires extra items I will note it with an asterisk at the bottom of the page.

How to earn TPT Credits:
"Earn TpT Credits for purchases on TpT. You get one TpT Credit for every $ you spend on TpT. Thing is, you only get the Credits after you Provide Feedback -- both a fair rating and a fair comment -- on the items that you purchase. We will round up for you, too! If you provide fair feedback on a $4.75 item, you will earn 5 credits. Every 100 Credits is worth $5 that you can apply towards future TpT purchases, but there is no need to wait until you have 100 to redeem them. 50 credits is worth $2.50, for example."--TPT Credits Page
