Think-Pair-Share is a simple practice that ensures everyone has a chance to formulate and air their thinking, not only the people who readily speak up in groups.
  • Think—prepare your thoughts on your own (in response to guidelines given by the group leader or instructor), then
  • Pair up with another person, and, through sharing ideas verbally, refine them and prepare to
  • Share a key part of your ideas with the whole group, which you do when called on by the group facilitator (or instructor).
