Jigsaw is used to develop knowledge and figure out various ways to teach it to other students in a small group. First a small group studies a topic and learns it thoroughly and becomes an expert group. This expert group then breaks up and those students move over to other groups called “jigsaw group”, each jigsaw group consist of expert student who have gained through knowledge about the topic. After some time, these groups break up again to form new jigsaw groups.
The excellent thing about jigsaw group strategy is that when students assume the responsibility of a teacher, they lead the discussion and hence take up leadership roles. So It teaches the students to accept responsibility for learning something thoroughly.
I am going to use this strategy in my class.
