Kim Wilson-Daum –
I like the fact that the activities are arranged in a circle so that everyone is able to see everyone else participating. The center of the circle allows the teacher to be the center of attention during the delivery of instructions. Circles within circles provides a good flow of activities, keeping everyone engaged. The set up gives defined areas in which to stay during activities, and the stations are clearly marked. Each activity is approximately 15 seconds in duration, which helps to keep the student’s interest. Looks like it would be good for a class of about 25-30.
