Turn and Talk


Over this past weekend, I attended a local progressive education conference.  One of the workshop leaders used the Turn and Talk strategy instead of a traditional Think, Pair, Share.  I liked two things about Turn and Talk.

1.  The alliteration.  I am a sucker for that literature concept brought to life.

2.  I sometimes like to just start talking about a concept or lesson with someone else.  I don't always want (or need) to reflect on it first by myself.

Plus, I would say I am a bit of an expert on Turn and Talk...at Trader Joe's, waiting in line at the post office, at Joann's as my fabric is being cut....Ha!

  1. Funny, my education class today covered Turn and Talk. We watched a video of it and then discussed the ups and downs of it and how it could be applied in our own classrooms one day.

    1. I still adore Think, Pair, Share, but it is nice to mix it up sometimes....

      Variety is the spice of life, right?

  3. As a student, I love "turn and talk"! It helps me get excited about whatever concept is being presented, and it's a nice change from just listening to a lecture. It definitely helps me stay focused!
