## Reflection: Checks for Understanding Component Form of Vectors - Section 3: Putting it together

A gallery walk is a great way to have a formative assessment.  As I read responses I can analyze students thinking on the key terms. This process also helps students see other students thinking. Many students are afraid to share when learning new material for fear of being wrong.  Doing a gallery walk where corrections can be made helps reduce student embarrassment. I find using the same color of maker also helps reduce any fears students have about errors.  I have students use one color to put out new ideas and another color to correct any errors (i.e. Black for new ideas, green to correct errors.)
