If you use POGILS in class, has it been successful? Do you use them as an introduction, in the middle or as a review of a topic?

I sometimes use parts of a Pogil as reviews. I don't usually give my freshmen the whole Pogil packet.
Right now I use them to follow up on a lesson. I am working towards developing my lessons to have them start them out though.
The Chemistry Curriculum Writer for our district does almost all of the lessons as POGILS. It does alleviate the problem of students not having books or internet but many of the students do not want to take the time to read to learn.
I have found the format to be beneficial for Homebound students but the lessons are labor intensive.
I use them after to reinforce. I think some are straightforward enough to use as an introduction.
In Anatomy, I use most of them as an introduction. This was my first year using them. I used one on blood-types and that was probably the most successful.
I have found that after one or two times of POGILS, students were more confident in their groups and more successful.
