Reflection: Checks for Understanding Creating Powerpoints as Summative Assessment of Romeo and Juliet - Section 2: Building Knowledge: Gallery Walk


Gallery Walk

Every time I do a gallery Walk with students I always tell myself, "Why don't I do this more often?"  I guess because it does take preparation and students need to cooperate with each other for it to be successful.  I think this gallery Walk was successful because the question was intriguing and there was no right or wrong answer.  Students had a lot to say about who they thought was responsible for Romeo and Juliet's death.  Comments included:

  • Romeo and Juliet were of course responsible because they knew what they were getting into by falling in love.
  • The Friar married them so he was responsible then he ran away at the end!
  • The two families acting like jerks and caused their suicides.
  • It was Tybalt because he started all the fights.
