Trust me. When I say that it’s boring to stay still in a classroom for an hour, I really do mean it!
If I had a dollar for every time I caught my students dozing of or scanning their phones in my class, I’d gladly give up my salary (wink). You peeps agree with me?
Teaching ESL is not easy and I feel sorry for the learners too who have to cope with a dozen other problems besides learning a new language. A month into teaching my new batch, it reflected in their behavior. I wasn’t happy.
I had to try a new approach. So, I buckled up and folded my sleeves to work on introducing a new learning technique.
Enter, Gallery Walk.
Gallery walk is not something new and is quite popular among teachers and students. It’s a learning technique where students learn by walking around the classroom. What again? Yes. Moving in groups.
