Product Description
I have created 10 literacy/learning stations for the Novel Things Fall Apart by Chinua Achebe. This hero is almost Shakespearean in his tragedy, and it makes for a powerful read.

The literacy stations explore textual evidence, cultural norms, characterization, and symbolism...just to name a few.
This is an engaging and entertaining formative assessment. 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.

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 learning structure really lets the teachers become the facilitator and the student becomes the creator. It’s that 80% vs. 20% relationship that we all strive for.
I hope you enjoy this set of stations and that you come back and visit my TPT to give some feedback. If you would like me to create stations for a specific novel or short story---just let me know (post on my question board). Click the green star in the right corner to follow me and you will be sent a notice when I post new learning stations.
