As students work with and process information by discussing, organizing, and sharing it together, they deepen their understanding. When learners become experts on a certain topic through analyzing multimodal texts, whether in groups or individually, and share their understanding with different students, they practice their literacy skills during content area instruction. Research has shown that student understanding of content material is higher after participating in jigsaw reading activities.
Watch as this teacher uses jigsaw as a differentiation strategy for reading comprehension. Each student in the home group has time to prepare an idea to share and, working together, all become experts and can share their learning with other students.
Videos are chosen as examples of strategies in action. These choices are not endorsements of the products or evidence of use of research to develop the feature.
