Gallery Walk

What would you say if you walked by a classroom where all the students were talking and walking around? Some might say that the students were misbehaving, while others might say that every student was actively engaged in learning. The technique called gallery walk gets students out of their chairs and actively involved in reading, writing, public speaking, and synthesizing concepts. Questions are posted around the classroom on charts (which represent stations). Teams rotate from one chart or station to another, composing answers to questions and reflecting on the answers given by previous teams at the station. The technique closes with a "report out."
