Product Description
Changing Times Jigsaw Method Activity {U.S. History}

This resource is a great way to put students in charge of their own learning through the jigsaw cooperative learning strategy. Students are in charge of becoming the experts on the topics of the Cold War, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Civil Rights Movement in order to teach the rest of the class.

Included in this resource:
-Directions for the jigsaw method
-Research based rationale for the jigsaw method
-A set of research passages broken down into jigsaw chunks
-A list of ideas for how students can share their information with their group
-Student note taking pages for accountability
-3 types of notes pages are included to differentiate:
1. a blank notes page with topics only
2. a scaffolded notes page with fill in the blanks
3. a completed notes page with all pertinent information
-Student assessment for accountability with answer key
-Both multiple choice and open ended questions available

By making students the experts in their content area they take ownership of their learning and flourish as both learners and teachers.

What does the research say about the jigsaw method?
• Cooperative learning has been identified as one of the nine instructional methods proven by research to make a significant difference in student performance
(Marzano, Pickering & Pollock, 2001).
• Cooperative learning consistently yields higher levels of achievement than either competitive or independent learning
(Johnson, Johnson, & Holubec, 1994).
