    2. Working as a group review and discuss your answers.
    3. Based on your answers and your discussion, work as a group to create a poster that communicates your understandings based on the question. 
    4. Hang your poster in the area assigned by the facilitator.
    5. Engage in a gallery walk by reviewing the posters. As you stroll and interact with your classmates, take notes about what you want to remember, new understandings, or ideas for your own teaching. 
    6. After the gallery walk, the facilitator will ask five students to make a statement about how they can use assessment to teach and to promote student learning.
