Abstract

“Think-pair-share” is a widely known active-learning technique. I summarize some of the best practices to use and some pitfalls to avoid when designing a think-pair-share activity for the classroom. Describing a think-pair-activity that I used to teach about biotechnology, I discuss question writing, logistics, assessment, and useful applications of think-pair-share in the science classroom.
