Roaring 20s Jigsaw and One-Pager Activity
I use this activity in my United states history class once a semester/year (depending on the length of the course). I try to avoid teaching each unit the same way. Most of my students enjoy jigsaw and station activities because these types of activities allow students to work with their peers and they allow students some “creative freedom and choice.” I generally use jigsaw activities mid-way into the semester/year. By that point, students are familiar with my classroom expectations and feel more comfortable working with their peers in small groups.
This activity allows students to practice important skills including: research skills, time-management skills, organization skills, communication (both written and verbal) skills, and collaborative skills.
This activity can be used in several ways. I’ve used this activity in lieu of lecture/discussion when I’m running short on time and I have a lot of content I still need to cover. Jigsaw activities are a great way to cover a lot of content in a short period of time. I have also used this activity as an end-of-the-unit review. I am currently using this particular activity as both a review & assessment in my Roaring Twenties unit.
