  1. When prompted by the facilitator, post your asset map in the place designated for your school (or feeder school).
  2. Use a gallery walk to peruse the maps for your same community, and then view others’ maps, noting resources you may not have identified in your own school neighborhood.
  3. Return to your seat to make a final update to your map and any needed adjustment to your explanation. 
  4. Turn in your map and email your written explanation of it to the facilitator before next class period.
