Split information (information gap)

How to use split information

Students work in pairs, each person within the pair having half the information on their sheet. The information is usually presented in two different formats such as a diagram and a paragraph. The students talk to find out the missing information that will complete their sheet.

The benefits of split information

  • Encourages focused academic talk and deep processing of material.
  • Encourages turn taking.
