In less than 2 minutes, I would like to paint a picture of a peer learning walk. My hope is that you will begin to consider this practice and that you will soon find yourself seeing instructional practices in another classroom, and then trying those practices in your own room where they will be valuable to both you and your students.
For more information with practical tips on how to make this realistically happen, see the recent blog post entitled, “Stepping Into Each Other’s Classrooms.”
In Scene 1 (of 6), I’ll depict what often happens during a first experience with a peer learning walk.
