Cooperative Learning: Research and Practice.
Foyle, Harvey C.; Lyman, Lawrence
Jigsaw, a form of cooperative learning, was researched by Aronson (1978). Later, Slavin (1981) adapted Jigsaw to Student Team Learning and called it Jigsaw II. Jigsaw currently shows the least achievement gains among the various cooperative methodologies. Nonetheless, it is a viable methodology and is useful for covering and reviewing material. This document provides a way of implementing a Jigsaw-type lesson about cooperative learning. Student instructions, questions for each group to answer, and 16 abstracts selected from the ERIC database under the descriptor of "Cooperative Learning" are included. The abstracts are to be used by student groups as evidence or research findings from which they make their decisions. A five item bibliography is included. (GEA)
