Name of Strategy
During Reading: General During Reading
Description
I used a jigsaw activity for an 8-paged article on Wm. Shakespere. Groups of four were assigned two pages each. Then one from each group met in a different group to fill out an outline of key points needed to know for the unit.
Rank Strategy
Useful but Needs to Be Modified
Reflection
Students were happy they didn't have to read the whole article. They read their sections more completely than usual. I will use it again, but I'll allow more time. There was good exchange that we didn't have time for. Interesting point: several students asked to take the article home to read it all.
