Protocol Overview and Instructions:
The Think-Pair-Share strategy is designed to differentiate instruction by providing students time and structure for thinking on a given topic, enabling them to formulate individual ideas and share these ideas with a peer. In this strategy, a problem is posed, students have time to think about it individually, and then they work in pairs to solve the problem and share their ideas with the class. Think-Pair-Share is easy to use within a planned lesson, but is also an easy strategy to use for spur-of-the-moment discussions.
Think-Pair-Share Protocol Instructions
Students were asked to partner up and coach one another while throwing on the wheel, and help one another, providing advice. I have about 6 students overall that have done an incredible job of picking up the skills and helping their peers. This was a great opportunity for students to learn from one another.
"My way is only 1 way of MANY when it comes to throwing. Listening to the students coach one another about what works for them individually has been really incredible to watch."
"I made a silly mistake that I didn’t catch; the wheel was spinning for a left handed thrower. I am right handed. Thanks for catching that Sam!" M.M.
Meet the Educator:
I am Lisa Rilley and this is my 15th year teaching art, and my 5th year with Hamilton Community Schools. I have taught Y5 up to 12th grade in a sweeping variety of art courses! My first 7 years of teaching were in alternative ed, and I also worked for Holland Public School and The Art Institutes.
"My passion for PBL came from already teaching a project based course. PBL/Design Thinking gave me a foundation to use while helping my students unpack their creative destinations. The entire protocol guide gives structure to my tendency to be more abstract and random in my teaching style. This helps to honor my students who need and crave that structure."
