THINK - PAIR - SHARE
Make a Hypothesis
"How do you think the animals in the Arctic stay warm?"
Partners turn to each other and take turns sharing for a few minutes.
Share a Thought
"How do the animals of the desert habitat use a cactus?"
Try to USE the strategy in one core subject area and provide me feedback on your thoughts to its effectiveness with your class.
Have you already used THINK-PAIR-SHARE before? If so, try to think of some modifications or adaptations you could use either for just making a fresh twist to a common practice, or to provide support for a special needs student.
