Listen-Draw-Pair-Share is an adaptation of the more common Think-Pair-Share. Here, students draw and label a diagram illustrating what they know about a topic. They share and discuss their drawing with a partner.

The teacher presents new information, such as through a read aloud, an assigned text, a lecture, or a film. Then students alter or redo their drawings to reflect what they now know about the topic. Students again share and discuss their drawings with a partner and explain what changes were made.
