Gallery Walk: Choose 5-7 flashcards that relate to the topic of study. Tape one each to the top of a chart paper, sheet of butcher paper or, a large piece of paper. Post the charts evenly-spaced on the walls around the room at eye-level for the students. Direct an equal number of students to stand under each poster with one marker for the recorder. Tell each group to add ideas, drawings, words, and questions to the chart that relate to the word card. (This open-ended format allows for students to self-differentiate to their level of understanding.) After students have exhausted all of their ideas, flash the lights indicating that the groups should move to the next chart, read what is there, and add additional ideas. Continue until groups have returned to their original poster. They can now circle and report on the 3-5 most important ideas to the whole class.
