ENGLISH LANGUAGE ARTS STATION ACTIVITIES FOR COMMON CORE STATE STANDARDS
This book includes a collection of station-based activities to provide students with opportunities to practice and apply the skills and concepts they learn in class. It contains station activities for each of the following Common Core standards for middle school English Language Arts: Reading—Literature; Reading—Informational Text; Writing; and Language. Speaking and Listening standards are infused throughout the station activities.
- The Reading activities explore text complexity and comprehension
- The Writing activities cover specific types of writing, response to reading, and research
- The Language activities provide practice with English language usage and conventions.
The 17 sets of activities can reinforce direct instruction or provide practice and review as needed. The debriefing discussions after each set of activities provide an important opportunity to help students reflect on their experiences and synthesize their thinking. They also provide an additional opportunity for ongoing, informal assessment to inform instructional planning. Answer key. J. Weston Walch. 162 pages. ©2012.commoncore
