## GALLERY WALK ACTIVITY IN MATH CLASS

Gallery Walk is a discussion technique that gets students out of their chairs and into a mode of active engagement.
How it works?
• Work in groups on a question.
• Questions are posted on different "stations" on classroom walls
• After certain amount of time, teacher will say rotate.
• Each group rotates to the clockwise to reviews what previous groups have written and adds new content.
• When the group returns to the station where it started, the group synthesizes comments and makes an oral report, the "reports out" phase of Gallery Walk," to the class.
