Pair-Share is an effective way of increasing student engagement in the classroom. Asking students to pair-share their answer to a question allows time for students to process their thoughts and discuss it first before sharing it with the class. Students should be encouraged to use complete sentences when responding to a question. Teachers should ask a question, then pause to allow thinking time. This allows students time to formulate a response before talking with their partner. Pair-Share increases the amount of student to teacher talk in the classroom, embedding speaking and listening into every lesson.
