Quick Tip: Teaching Strategies: Think, Pair, Share (TPS)
 

Think, Pair, Share is a teaching tool that develops critical thinking and collaborative skills. Students are given a question that requires thought to answer, or problem to solve. How and why questions work particularly well here. So do questions of prediction. Individually, students think through possible answers and solutions. Then students are paired with a partner to discuss each other’s answers. Finally, they share their answers with the class, which will lead to discussion and a final conclusion.


Social skills such as showing respect and listening to other points of view are strengthened with this approach to learning, as well as self-confidence, as students find their own views being listened to with respect. This strategy also supports linguistic skills because students need to formulate and express their answers and reasoning for others to understand. 

If students are given a reading assignment prior to the TPS and the question to answer relates to the reading, the TPS exercise will help students to stay on topic and strengthen their reading comprehension skills.
