Choose statements/paragraphs that
provide opportunity for students to
draw conclusions about the author or

have chosen)
6. Plan for Judges Table
Create tasks that require evaluation of
author technique or literary technique
or feature.
7. Early Finishers
Create tasks that focus on Creating,
Evaluating, and Analyzing.
This is also a great opportunity to
address essential questions that align
with standard.

6. Once groups are finished with tasks: Regroup students by
having students in each group count off by 4. Create Group
1,2,3,4
Each group should contain a member from each of the
previous groups (wordworker, concluder, supporter, judges
table)
7. Teacher facilitates group members presenting information.
Depending on grade level, teacher can introduce each
member and allot time for each.
8. Close jigsaw with formative assessment of information
shared during groupwork and sharing of Early Finisher Work
It is imperative to share data results of assessment to help
students take ownership of their student teaching and
maintain high accountability for the following jigsaw activity.
