Reflection: Student Led Inquiry Google Gallery Walk - Poetry Lesson 10 - Section 2: Group Work/Gallery Walk


The student led portion of this day was wonderful.  I love to hang back and listen to the unique ideas they come up with.  I also think they learn so much more when they make a mistake in small groups like this, and we discuss to correct their thinking on a more personal level than whole class.

The one issue I do want to address for next time is the number of poems used.  This is the first time I have used a virtual gallery walk.  I did so due to the size of the room, and was thinking in terms of a true walk when I used a poem for each group.

While the higher level students in my classes could handle the number of poems for some of my classes I would definitely lower the number so they have more time with each poem.   

Since we are using google docs more than one group can visit the same poem at the same time without crowding.
