What is Think Pair Share (TPS)?
Think-Pair Share is an instructional tactic used by teachers in the classroom. It is less complex than most other instructional strategies, making it a great strategy for a teacher's "everyday bag of tricks"*. Here's a few more important points about Think Pair Share (referred to as TPS throughout the site).
- TPS provides students the opportunity to talk to one-three classmates without the stress of the whole class listening
- It is an intrapersonal strategy* which is key for students who fall under the Intrapersonal Category of Multiple Intelligences*
- It is also considered a Reflection Strategy; this is because it allows the students to think about what they would like to say before saying it
