JIGSAW II

** **

**Objective: **

**To increase student’s sense of
responsibility by making each one an expert on one part of a unit then having
each student teach the part for which he/she has become an expert to the other
members of his/her team.**

** **

**Directions:**

** **

- Students are assigned to teams to work on content material that ahs been divided into sections.

- Students read the entire selection focusing on their assigned part of the lesson/topic.

- Then students meet with their expert group, which has members of different teams who have studied the same selection, to discuss questions provided by the teacher.

- Students return to their original teams and take turns teaching teammates about the section they have studied.

**Numbered Heads Together**

** **

**Objective:**

** **

**To group students and structure
the questions/answer period so that all students engage in discussion about the
issues presented.**

** **

**Directions:**

** **

- The teacher arranges students in groups or teams of 4 or 5, assigning a number to each individual within a group.

- The teacher asks a question of the entire class.

- Students are then directed to “put their heads together” to discuss the answer and to be sure everyone in their group knows the correct answer.

- Then the teacher calls a number at random and each individual with that number must be ready with an answer because no one knows which teams member will be called to answer the question.

- If an incorrect answer is given, the teacher can call on another group or team.
