Kelli Thomas 

September 2006, Volume 13, Issue 2, Page 86

Abstract:
The results of research about students' and teachers' use of an interaction framework (THINK) to guide group communication about problem solving. Students who used the THINK framework demonstrated greater gains in problem-solving achievement than students who did not use the framework. Teachers reading this article will understand the THINK framework and how to apply it to classroom use.
