A Successful SDAIE Strategy
A successful SDAIE strategy that I have seen is Think-Pair-Share - When asked to consider an idea or answer a question, students write their ideas on paper (think). Each student turns to another student nearby and reads or tells his or her own responses (pair, share). This is an oral exchange, not a reading of each other's papers. I have seen this in practically every classroom that I have been in. it is effective because it is quick and gets the ideas straightened out concisely. It gives each student a chance to test their ideas and correct them if they are incorrect. Then the lesson moves on.
