Display: Turn & Talk

Turn and Talk is a great strategy to use in the classroom. Students are given a chance to discuss their ideas with a partner.

Here are some of the benefits of Turn and Talks or Think-Pair-Shares:

  • Every student gets to share his or her ideas.
  • Students can build ideas and knowledge off of each other.
  • Students can learn from their peers.
  • It helps to build a classroom community.
  • Providing a chance of dialogue in the classroom can decrease out-of-turn talking, or other disruptive behaviors.
  • It is an easy check-in. Listening in can serve as a formative assessment to see if the students are understanding.
  • Builds communication and speaking skills.
