DE in Action April: Stations Based Resources

In 2016, Discovery Education is highlighting the great things happening in schools everyday through our DE in Action series. In April, our topic was Stations Based Learning. Lance Rougeux, Vice President of Learning Communities and Innovation, and Kelly Hines, Senior Manager of Community Engagement, shared some insightful tips and tricks from your Discovery Education Community. In case you weren’t able to join us, we wanted to share these great ideas with all of you!

    • Lance’s Presentation: Lance shares his presentation, providing framework around the ideas shared by our Community members, also offering how-to’s for implementing their ideas.

    • Dana talks about the logistics behind getting started with stations in her California classroom. She gives us a bit of insight into how she set up her stations and taught her students expectations, all 41 of them!

    • Francie, DEN STAR from Florida, shares with us how she set up stations in her classroom that focus on writing. She incorporates Discovery Education’s Writing Prompt Builder and the SOS Strategies for images in an innovative and student-driven way.

    • Seth gives us a sneak peek into his classroom in North Carolina. He and his students are using the Board Builder tool in an exciting way to organize an share their learning.

  • Lance wrapped up by sharing a sneak peek into Martha’s middle grades 360 Classroom. If you want to see what a great stations based environment looks like “in action”, don’t miss out on this immersive experience.
