Here is another set of stations you can set up around your classroom to help students independently reflect on and improve their information writing.
These eight stations cover
* When to break paragraphs
* Maintaining formal language by not using first or second person pronouns
* Combining sentences for power, variety, and voice
* Ensuring sentences are complete and verb tenses are consistent
* Using figurative language
* Elaborating with details
* Ordering information
* Wisely using synonyms
Each station gives information and examples and challenges students to take on the task of revising their information piece with power!
My students and many of my colleagues have really enjoyed using these. I'm sure you'll like them, too!
