  • Review the Jigsaw protocol (Appendix 1)
  • Create “expert groups” based around the three texts: Rain School, Nasreen’s Secret School, and That Book Woman. These groups should be hetergenous. If the class is large, consider making two groups for each text (for a total of six).
  • Create “Jigsaw groups” in which there is one representative from each expert group.
  • Students make several transitions in this lesson. Understand the lesson sequence clearly, in order to alert students to each upcoming transition.
