Reflection: Accountability Beside Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star - Section 2: Procedure


I like to use think pair share because it helps to keep all students on task and accountable to participating during instruction.

  • It helps students to think individually about a topic or answer to a question.
  • It teaches students to share ideas with classmates and builds oral communication skills.
  • It helps focus attention and engage students in comprehending the reading material.


When I have students who do not want to talk in front of the whole class, but I am sure they have valuable information to share, I like to use this strategy.  Those shy students will often share with one classmate, and feel safe.  Sometimes then, their partner with share the idea, or eventually, the more timid student having already shared the idea, will now feel bold enough to share on their own.
