Reflection: Rigor GCF and LCM Project Gallery Walk - Section 1: Gallery Walk Procedure


I decided that it would be important to have students give their feedback as they were rotating throughout the projects.  I gave each group a set of post-its, with the instructions of writing a math question, a statement about their math confusion, or a math compliment.  I felt it was necessary to stress the importance of their feedback being math-based, because in the past, students have focused on color choice, handwriting, and other incidental things.

When groups returned to their project, I gave them a few minutes to read through their notes.  I knew that students would have questions, concerns, and differing opinions regarding their feedback, so I allowed them to share out.  I realized that students felt very defensive about their work and I reminded them that the feedback was meant to help them as they move forward in their math work.

The post it notes are also useful as a way for me to assess students' understanding based on their feedback.
