Collaborative learning allows students to consolidate their understanding as they interact with peers using academic language and argumentation skills. In this easy-to-use but comprehensive guide to Jigsaw, teachers will learn what Jigsaw is, how to prepare before, during, and after jigsaw, and how to assess it.

In this On-Your-Feet Guide, teachers will find:
• An introduction to Jigsaw and how it was invented
• Ideas for helping teachers prepare before, during, and after Jigsaw
• Advice for forming groups in the classroom
• An If-Then chart that helps teachers troubleshoot common problems
