Conver-Stations is a small group discussion strategy that gets students up and moving around. This strategy leads to deeper understanding and encourages students to lead the conversation.
1. The teacher develop reflection questions, writes them on slips of paper, and places them in a bowl, basket, bag, or other container.
Listed below are options as you progress:
1.The students pick a question from the container and reflects on the question independently.
2.The teacher develops class question sets for each small group. Each student chooses a question and,reflects on it.
3.The teacher develops enough questions for half of their class and makes two copies.The students select their question, then find the person in the class with the same question. They reflect on the question with their partner before reporting out.
In this strategy the teacher posts a question or prompt, and the students Think-it (think time to process the question / prompt), Ink-it (record their responses), and Link-it (connect their learning to their life or prior knowledge).
It can be recorded in various ways: Blog, exit ticket etc.
