Jigsaw Cooperation

An adapted extract from an article in Education World, 2001:

Jigsaw graphic adapted from lambertandflanagan.comSIXTH-GRADE teacher Ellen Berg desperately wanted to show her students the true meaning of a fairy tale, but [how to] organize an activity that would encourage them to develop their own definition of the term, willingly? The “jigsaw method” provided the backdrop for the dynamic and engaging lesson that her students still recall!

Berg began by having her students divide into five equal groups, each with one fairy tale to read: “The Ugly Duckling,” “Snow White,” “Hansel and Gretel,” “Jack and the Beanstalk,” or “The Three Little Pigs.” Each was responsible for collecting information such as: Who are the characters in the story? Where does the story take place? What are the major events of the story? Are there any supernatural events? If so, what are they?

After the students read, discussed, and recorded the above information, one person from each fairy tale assembled in a new jigsaw group. Each spent three minutes to tell the other new members the story they read and researched. After that, every group created a poster and gave a presentation addressing two points: (1) What do all five stories have in common?

Migration Migraine

Migration - Microsoft Office clipartMAY DAY! Still migrating from pMachine (pM) Pro to WordPress (WP). All earlier entries in InfoGraphicsDesigner have been re-categorized and are now ready :-) . All other entries (over 200 of them) and all comments are not :-( .

This software which i’ve been using over the two years seems highly ‘protectionist’. It’s like “Hotel California”: “You can check out any time you like, but you can [almost] never leave.” The pM folks don’t provide any export function. WP has import scripts for many software but not pM. Out on the Web, only a problematic pM 2.3 to WP 1.2 converter is available although WP is already at 1.5. Read the rest of this entry »
