... now for Jigsaw II
The same text is used by all the students. Each expert group is assigned a different topic which the text relates to. For example, if the text is a short story which has been read in class, then different topics could include:
a) scan text/story for people, places and number and then categorize into groups. (lower performing students)
a) to summarize the content (middle group)
b) to write about the different characters (middle to strong)
c) to find out information about the author (strong)
d) to look up background information about the place where the story takes place or historical background
As in Jigsaw I, after completing the task in the EXPERT groups, the students are divided into the HOME groups, where they each report back to the group and then complete a task prepared by the teacher, requiring the students to relate to all of the topics.
