The empowered educator recognizes the power of student led learning by utilizing the station rotation model. In this session, attendees will explore the station rotation model, discuss how multiple standards can be addressed within one station rotation, and build a station rotation doc to use in their classroom.

By the end of this session, participants will be able to design and implement station rotations in their classroom. There will be discussion of rotation formats that vary slightly from teacher to teacher. It will be highly encouraged for educators to provide opportunities for learners to collaborate and curate while making their way through the document. Attendees will learn how to incorporate multiple standards across content areas (when possible). Attendees will share ideas and have the opportunity to dump their creates in one area for others to remix and use in their own classrooms.
This session will operate as a make-and-take while collaborating with educators within the room and building a network to build upon for the upcoming school year. Attendees will view various station rotation templates (10 min), receive templates to use, participate in discussions on the design process (20 min) , and then begin to work on their very own station rotation model (30+ min).
Hybrid station rotations allow for differentiation and personalized, self-paced learning. Additionally, learners are able to create and collaborate which helps prepare students for life beyond school. All of which is research-based and imperative to a successful learning experience for students.
