Jigsaw Group 2

Link back to Main ADT Group Session WIki
Step 1: Share the findings of your base groups with each other:

As you listen to the changes in teaching practices that are suggested, each one of you make a note of those that you, individually, are currently using and those that you are not using right now, but would consider using in your own teaching (assuming that you could have the necessary training/support in helping you learn any additional skills that you may need in order to implement these strategies).

Step 2: Appoint a recorder. On the Jigsaw 2 Wiki for your group:

(a) List the strategies that your group members have listed as currently using
  • discussion groups
  • teach theory and practice
  • instruction on what constitutes group work and what is plagiarism
  • put notes on the web
  • use multiple modes of teaching
  • learning how to critique web sources
  • phase lecture to prevent audience burnout (yawning)

(b) List the strategies that you would consider using in the future (based on what you have learned from others):
  • standing on head
  • grammar by interpretive dance
  • in-class, participatory experiments ("determine which are oil seeds")
  • go out and find examples, and bring to class for discussion
  • write "why I don't want to take this course"
