Classroom Management FAQ’s

Problem: My clustermates and I are considering suspending station rotations during January and February since testing will be right around the corner. What do you think? How can we best prepare our students for these high stakes tests?

Consider: During test preparation time, it is more important than ever to maintain a schedule with which students are familiar.  Celebrate the progress and success your students are having with the station model by remembering that you have expert teachers focusing on the skills necessary to be successful in each subject area.  Three heads are better than one. Rely on each other to continue with frequent station time and include activities that encourage students to:

  • write short and extended response reflections;
  • practice testing formats (bubble responses);
  • use subject specific vocabulary in projects and products.
