As you could see, the URL includes word “paarschool” that means “pair school” in English. What is this for, and how we are working? Briefly, we offer you the method of pair learning to simplify your teaching work and to render your class free of bored students.
We cooperate with you in easy way. This flyer contains an example of pair work that you can immediately use in your class “as is", without any additional work. This is the first “principle” of students’ pair learning.
Brief explanation to this “principle” of pair working. We don’t know the age of your students and the subject you are teaching. Hence, you should use the algorithm shown below in creative way, by taking into account the age of students and information provided by particular subject.
The teacher asks students to sit in pair and says, Now, we’ll write the fairy tale, each of you should invent your own one. Take a sheet of paper, write on the top your name and date. Ask your partner what sentence should open the fairy tale. Give your partner your sheet and ask her or him to write down one sentence for fairy tale. Then, invent your own opening, and write one sentence in the partner’s sheet. Then, change the partner in your pair. In the next pair, read aloud the opening of your fairy tale, and ask your partner to invent and say aloud the next sentence that continues your fairy tale and then write it down to your sheet. You do the same with your partner’s fairy tale.Teacher allocates some amount of time to this work, and then stops this work.
We hope you can easily find the ways to use this algorithm in your classes while teaching your subject.

You can also visit the website where we discuss with teachers the practical aspects of pair learning of different subjects, with students of different ages, in schools, colleges and universities: www.pedsovet.org/forum/forum84.html . Here, you can find multiple topics with names starting with “Method of pair learning…” followed by name of subject. If your subject is not represented there, please, email us, we’ll discuss the issue and create another topic devoted to your subject.
We wish you a lot of success, health and wellness!
