Reflection: Student Ownership Character Gallery Walk - Section 2: Setting Up for the Gallery Walk


Asking for students' help is a simple way to give them ownership over what is happening.  Most kids want to help, so asking them to pass out handouts or empty the pencil sharpener is the best thing ever. By having students hang up their own work, every students gets to have ownership of the gallery walk.  Yes, everyone's work is hanging up, so everyone has ownership.  But by having students hang up their own work, that ownership is more tangible.  They can also help each other find the characters.  If T made a poster for Tommy, and S shouts out, "Where's Tommy?" then T can tell S, "Oh, Tommy's right here.  That's my poster!"

A simple way to create student ownership that also creates less work for you?  Yes, please.
