This is a three-day long research jigsaw. The students break up into three different groups where each group studies some part of the historical background of Tennessee Williams' _The Glass Menagerie_. The project culminates with each group presenting a Prezi or PowerPoint. After presentation the students have a better understanding of the time period of Williams' memory play; they are now able to successfully read _The Glass Menagerie_! My students enjoy researching this way.
