PD Session 02 – Gallery Walk

Gallery walks gets students out of their chairs and actively involves them in synthesizing important concepts, in consensus building, in writing, and in public speaking. When students take part in a gallery walk, teams rotate around the classroom, composing answers to questions as well as reflecting upon the answers given by other groups. Questions are posted on charts or just pieces of paper in different parts of the classroom. Each chart or “station” has its own question that relates to an important class concept. The technique closes with an oral presentation or “report out” in which each group synthesizes comments to a particular question.
