      True

    • B.

      False

    Think-Pair-Share is a strategy that challenges the assumption that all recitations or discussions need to be held in whole-group settings. This means that instead of having the entire class participate at once, students are given the opportunity to work in pairs or small groups. This strategy also provides students with more time to think and respond, as well as the chance to help each other. Therefore, the statement that Think-Pair-Share has built-in procedures for giving students more time to think and respond and to help each other is true.
