"The Birthmark" Thinking Stations
is a great way to get your students talking about the story, analyzing text, and relating the story to real life. There are 8 stat
ions and students rotate around the room to answer the questions with their group. Students move, collaborate, discuss, analyze, synthesize, and think critically
in this activity. One of the stations has students comparing a modern article to the story, which gives students some practice with non-fiction text.
I have also included the task stations on one handout for students who are absent and miss the activity or for those who are mooching off their classmates without participating. Those who don't help out can move to a desk by themselves and complete the task alone.
The station cards come in black and white as well as color
. The good thing is that you only have to print them once. They are on half sheets, so the task is big enough for everyone in the group to see. One card per station.
A detailed answer key
is also included as well as a copy of "The Birthmark" story
**The page total does not include the black and white duplicates of the task stations or the story itself.
