Planning an Assess-Respond-Instruct Cycle
Decide what content you are responsible for teaching for. Then specifically list the skills needed to master the content you are responsible for. Next cluster your pre-skills in a way that makes sense.
Pre-assessments are one skill per question, one page or less, and organized.
What do we do if they don't know?
What do we do if they do?
A good structure for stations is to use tri-fold science fair boards with pockets. Fill the pockets, easily change content, and fold away for later.
It can pay off to go slow now so you can go fast later.
