Think Pair Share

Think-pair-share is a widely-used strategy that can be successfully implemented in classrooms across all grade levels. This learning strategy promotes structured student interaction and is a great way for teachers to support the features of the Interaction component of the SIOP Model. It can also be an effective way to differentiate instruction by providing students time and structure for thinking about a given topic, enabling them to formulate individual ideas and share these ideas with a peer, and ultimately the entire class/group (Simon, 2014).
