A way to facilitate discussion in class.
Think: Have students independently consider a question or prompt for 1-2 minutes.
Pair: Then have students turn to their neighbor and talk about their answers for 1-2 minutes.
Share: Come back together as a class and discuss everybody’s findings.
Great way to get all students participating in class. Shy students may feel more comfortable sharing with just one person rather than in front of the whole class.
Pedagogically speaking, it supports a constructivist framework in that learning and information-seeking in an educational setting is not only looking at print (text and digital), but is a social activity.
