This is an engaging and entertaining formative assessment. With a little preparation and careful instructions, students can rotate through several poetry based activities with simply a “rotate” from the teacher every 9-10 minutes.
This is a great way to culminate a study of your poetry unit. It can also be used as a group of Common Formative Assessments. Students are organized into multiple "learning stations". I’ve used learning stations with high school students for fifteen years.
Using stations with older students adds interest and engagement to any lesson. A student that was disengaged becomes receptive and interested when asked to complete a tactile assignment and 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 the educational component becomes a student driven learning experience.
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
