I posted last week about trying the jigsaw learning strategy with my 7th grade reading remediation class. I believe that it was a success. My goal was to have them discuss and make connections with key topics found in Freak the Mighty.
The only problem that I ran into as a particular “expert” group that did not complete their research in a timely manner. Because of this, a topic was fully discussed within those groups.
All in all, I will use this strategy again.
One more added in the teaching toolkit.
