ABSTRACT

The Station Rotation model is an intergenerational combination of the classroom of yesterday with the classroom of the future through 3 stations or tables set for students to study as groups. This model offers a platform for all levels of learners to be included and attended by the teacher on a one to one basis within the classroom effectively. This practice is prevalent mostly in the US and European countries and done to accommodate all kinds of learners especially the special needs students. The present study done in two Grade 4 classrooms of 30 students to evaluate and analyse the effective outcomes of   this method. One class following traditional versus one following the Station Rotation Model was studied. Results showed that compared to the traditional teaching approach the learning outcome is higher in all the learners (p<.05). The main advantage of the model is that students were less distracted and more interested to learn than ever before. The study concludes that the Rotation Stations can be a first step toward personalizing learning for students and helping in empowering all kinds of learners as well as achieving better all round curricular performances in Schools.
