Better than Think Pair Share


Variety is the spice of life! Don’t overuse “turn and talk” or “think pair share”. Change things up as you pose a focused question to your students and set clear expectations of how they will discuss it!

Take a look at the QSSSA presentation below with links to free templates!

Think about it…if a teacher poses 5 “regular” questions to a class, usually 5 students answer or participate. But if a teacher poses 5 “QSSSA” questions in the same class, all students participate and teacher can call on multiple students who are prepared with an answer!
