Primary Wall

Mr Jeff Mak shared this idea of using Primary Wall as a brainstorming tool and ideas bank during one of our weekly meetings. 

Primary Wall is an informal and fun way for students to post their thoughts on a topic. Recently, I got students to decide on a stand for a topic and to post 1-2 reasons to support their stand. This was a pre-lesson activity to check their prior knowledge of the topic, which allowed me to decide on how to angle subsequent lessons. It is also a way for students to check if they have the same arguments as their peers or whether they have come up with a more unique line of reasoning.
