Click on the title to check out handouts and sample questions to give to students to guide them through the think-pair-share (TPS) process.
How did I do it? I am sitting in front of the television, viewing one of my favorite reality shows and at the same time surfing the web. I looked at two examples and realized that the format could be applied to many different types of media and subject areas. The first few handouts were templates and with the magic of copy, cut and paste, as you can see, one can craft as many handouts to suit the needs of the students, one's lessons, and the curriculum.
The rewind on the advantages to TPS: it's easy, flexible, accessible, and one is able to quickly assess student learning.
