A Walk & Talk is an active discussion strategy for getting students out of their seats and changing the scenery.
The teacher provides a discussion prompt, question, or resource (such as an article or podcast) as well as a time limit. In partners, students go for a walk, either around the room or outside the classroom or even building, if possible, discussing the prompt or topic for the full time limit given.
