Curating a Writing Museum: A Protocol

41 views 0

Summary: This protocol introduces an activity professional development facilitators can use to guide participants in creating a “museum gallery walk” to study their students’ writing. The activity would work well after participants have experimented with new writing instruction in their classrooms and are ready for a collegial review of student writing samples. This resource can lead to rich discussions about what students have accomplished and can accomplish as writers. The activity can also be adapted easily to help teachers examine their own writing in similar ways.
