Spotlight on Strategies: 3-2-1 Pyramid

Full Video |03:21

The 3-2-1 Pyramid strategy provides a framework that guides student practice as they master the process of summarizing information. It also provides the teacher with evidence of student engagement in the content of what they have learned. This may be used as a formative or summative assessment. Another benefit of using this strategy is that it is quick and requires no complicated materials or time.
