In this video, a teacher helps her students get ready to participate in a Gallery Walk. In a Gallery Walk, pairs of students share posters describing the strategy they used to solve a math problem. Students rotate around the room, studying each group’s poster and leaving sticky notes with any questions or comments they might have.

To see more of this strategy in action, this video features a Gallery Walk from another classroom.
