Great explanation but, as a student, I HATE this learning method. I am now relying on my peers to teach me? What if they "forget" to mention important info, or wrongfully believed the info they didn't mention was not important and it ends up on exams. It seems a way to get teachers to do less work and be lazier, and this is coming from a student who hopes to become a teacher. Teachers need to test out this method and ONLY continue it if their students prefer it/learn from it.

Wow! Great video, I was totally looking for videos like this to have more knowledge about the Jigsaw and who would have thought, you also included the Jigsaw II! A question though, I am currently on my senior year in college and I am aspiring to be a teacher someday after graduation, and as part of the requirements, my research study is on the effectiveness of Jigsaw II. I was wondering, should I implement this for just one day as an intervention, or should I at least implement it on a session-basis (example, for day1- Jigsaw groupings and studying of materials; day2- students work with co-experts; and day3-will be the discussion with Jigsaw group and quiz day)? Thank you! :D

Thanks for that video. Have known about jigsaws methods but I was never very clear on how to implement this. I'm thinking this will be great for my reading groups. I have 16 8year olds reading at the same level so I am thinking this might be great on a smaller scale for reading comp.

Hello, i have a question. I'm about to teach my students with jigsaw, but i'm still confuse to make the contents. Do i need to make something like paper work (and students need to fill it with their expert group) or just a description of the lesson (and ask students to read it only)? Please answer me, thanks

Thank you very much! What I still don't get is how can I asses my student's knowledge after the experts return to their groups and present their work to their friends

i am very new at teaching and i appreciate and admire teachers like you cause you are an inspiration and a very helpful hand for all those believe that new teaching methods, that are so beautiful and simple based, can change the lives of so many people and hopefully create a generation of people who use their heads, knowing what is happening around them and are compassionate and creative

Great video. Good point about the expert groups needing to ensure all their members are strong on the material before moving on.
