    This project has revealed that using think pair share technique is a good tool for teaching reading comprehension because students feel confidence and can interact with their partners.

    Hi Heidy -
    Welcome to TESOL and the myTESOL Lounge.  It's great to have a representative from the Dominican Republic. It would be good to know what level you are teaching.  It sounds like you are interested pedagogy and technique.  So be sure to take a look at the TESOL resources page.  From the TESOL home page click "Connect to TESOL" and then "TESOL Resource Center".  Also - check out the Reading and Vocabulary Interest Section (Connect to TESOL/Communities of Practice).  There will be articles, discussions and webinars that may interest you.
