The Jigsaw Method
Step 1 Divide students into groups of 5 or 6
Step 2 Appoint one student from each group as the leader
Step 3 Divide the day’s lesson into 5-6 segments.
Step 4 Assign each student to learn one segment.
Step 5 Give students time to learn their segment by reading or watching the content at least twice and become familiar with it.
Step 6 Form temporary “expert groups” where every student in the group has just learnt the same segment.
Step 7 Bring the students back into their original groups.
Step 8 Ask each student to present their segment to the group
Step 9 Float from group to group and observe the process.
Step 10 At the end of the session, assess the material.
