The Development of Jigsaw IV in a Secondary Social Studies Classroom.
Holliday, Dwight C.
The history of cooperative learning at the elementary level is well documented. The research and utilization of cooperative learning at the secondary level is limited. This research aims to contribute to the literature on cooperative learning, especially Jigsaw II, at the secondary level. The research also represents a continuation of research conducted on Jigsaw II and III, subsequently leading to the development of Jigsaw IV as a cooperative learning strategy. Subjects in all three researches were 100 ninth-grade geography students at an inner city school situated in a gulf coast state. Findings suggest that Jigsaw IV answered the concerns of students and teachers using Jigsaw II and had a positive impact on the students' academic achievement. Contains a table of data and 10 references. Appendixes contain a unit lesson plan, a six-day plan, expert sheets, and a sample student survey. (Author/BT)
