A teacher's ability to teach Biology science concepts in English is a must. English language proficiency will make it easier for prospective biology teachers to access knowledge from various disciplines and countries. Unfortunately, several challenges in teaching Biology in English, such as student difficulties in understanding the material, inability to express oneself clearly, and lack of participation in class discussions make it difficult to achieve targets. This is relevant to the low level of communication and collaboration skills observed in classroom learning. Therefore, this action research study examined an approach that focuses on empowering prospective biology teachers' communication and collaboration skills through implementation of TPS (Think Pair Share) learning model into class. We worked with 9 prospective biology teachers in a teaching biology in English course at the biology department university in Indonesia. The method used in this research is the classroom action research method (CAR) based on lesson study activities, which consists of three cycles, namely planning, implementation, and reflection. Assessment is carried out using self-assessment and observation using Greenstein rubric. The data analysis technique used is descriptive analysis. The results suggested that the TPS (Think Pair Share) model helped prospective biology teachers to achieve better ways of communicating and collaborating during biology teaching. Communication skills in each cycle have increased, while collaboration skills still fluctuate in each cycle. We argued that grouping students should consider their previous abilities such as communication and collaboration, so that lecturers or teachers could make diagnostic tests before the learning
