What do I do when a student doesn’t have a partner?

Primary tabs

If a student’s partner is missing they should join with another pair to form a triad or find another student without a partner.  You can problem solve these solutions with your class as you establish the routines and procedures of Turn and Talk. Avoid taking on the role of filling in for a missing partner.  When you are involved in a paired conversation, you cannot listen in on other groups.
