In a two-part instructional activity, fourth graders are first assessed on their ability to produce an explanatory paragraph and then participate in a gallery walk, presenting their final constitution paragraphs to their peers. To start, learners write a paragraph explaining how their class constitution solves one of several issues described in a bar graph about bullying. Next, a gallery walk is held in which the class reads and posts comments on each others' writing. As a conclusion to the unit, the instructional activity nicely summarizes and celebrates the development students have made as young writers.
