ACT Assessment Coaching Stories

Jigsaw (11/26/18)

Students in the AP Literature class have been reading the novel 1984 by George Orwell. As part of that reading (they have one section left until the book is finished), they have been making connections to today’s world. In this lesson, students participated in a jigsaw activity. There were six article links attached to Google Classroom. Students were in groups of four (with one group of five), and each student took one of the articles to read. After reading the article, students individually answered questions about their article. After about 20 minutes, groups came back together and shared the articles with each other and discussed each before returning to the Google Form to answer the follow-up questions. Through discussion and reflection, this activity was designed to not only make connections to the assigned text but also to current life in the year 2018.
