Do you find it challenging to get more than a few students to participate in class discussions? Even when not everyone speaks, how can we get all to think and makes sense of the new concepts and use them in class? Are you considering how to add active learning into your class but feel there is little time to spare? What can you do in a large class that has rows and rows of anchored seats? This strategy requires little preparation on your part and is always successful!
Think-Pair-Share is a highly flexible active learning strategy that engages students in interacting the content and ideas in pairs when prompted by a question, quote, image, clip, or demonstration, etc. The question may help students think more deeply about content read before class or the new material introduced in class through lecture, media, student presentations, guest speakers, demonstrations, or other activities. The instructor, TA, peers, or guest speaker can prompt the Think Pair Share. If you want students to think in class and create more accountability for their engagement, this strategy works very well!
