This is a bundle of my most popular Shakespeare Learning Stations. They are engaging and interesting. Learning stations are the perfect way to review the ideas and structure of the drama. With a little preparation and careful instructions, students can rotate through several drama based activities with simply a “rotate” from the teacher every 9-10 minutes.
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 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.
