Thinking about having students perform a gallery walk for your next project? This lesson will give you some guidance and provide a rubric for use during the gallery walk phase of the project.

The Gallery Walk: Providing and Using Peer Feedback

Gallery walks are a great way to encourage collaborative learning by having students provide feedback on their peers' work. One of the advantages of the gallery walk exercise is its flexibility. Students can be asked to leave feedback anonymously or with their name attached, can provide detailed critiques or quick pointers, or can even make direct modifications to the work of their peers. How you ask students to perform the gallery walk is up to you.

The main goal of any gallery walk is twofold. First, students are asked to provide valuable feedback to their peers. This goal is crucial if any peer-based revision effort is expected to succeed. Second, each student must heed the feedback of their peers and incorporate it into revisions of their work. Some students are hesitant to do this, and gallery walk activities like this help to make students more comfortable with this process. The rubric that follows can be used to assess students as they work to meet both of these goals. As always, be sure to modify this rubric to fit the needs of your students.

NOTE: This rubric is not intended to assess the project that is being critiqued as part of the gallery walk. It is written to assess the gallery walk activity and subsequent revision efforts, as the feedback and revision processes are both viewed as incredibly important to producing high-quality work.
