This jigsaw activity is a great way to make learning about elections in the United States really stick! The jigsaw method of teaching allows students to be the experts and teach one another the content that they need to know by breaking the information down into chunks.

-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

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).
