PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This gallery walk, or walkabout, is part of my Shades of Gray novel unit. It's an active, engaging way for students to demonstrate comprehension of Carolyn Reeder's novel Shades of Gray. The gallery walk consists of seven question cards that can be posted around the classroom; they cover plot, setting, character, and theme. On large paper below the question, students write or draw an answer, adding to what their classmates have already written. I have students walk around in pairs, since my classes are usually pretty large, but of course this can be an individual-response activity as well. After everyone has answered every question, we go through the answers and discuss the variety of information as a class! This is a great way to invite all students into the discussion, and this activity can be used anytime after about halfway through the novel, since the resolution to the story is not mentioned.
I display the questions on giant Post-it notes, but of course you can also use posterboard, butcher paper, the chalkboard, or an interactive whiteboard.
The last page is a printable worksheet on all the same topics; I use it as a follow-up activity so students can reflect and synthesize what they've read and learned. For classes who need more thinking time, it could also be a prequel to the gallery walk, allowing students to think through their answers before having to write on the actual posters.
I hope you and your students enjoy this engaging discussion activity!
