Jig Saw Session

After your analysis group has come to some preliminary conclusions about the data you have collected, you will have a chance to share those findings with your peers in other analysis groups. You will randomly be assigned letters of the alphabet. Based on the letter you’re assigned, you will regroup with students in other analysis groups that have the same letter as you do. Each of you will share with those students the results that your group has examined and any conclusion that you have come to based on those results. Other members will listen to you and ask questions, make comments, or suggest possible errors. You will do the same for them when they share their group’s findings. Following this you’ll return to your analysis group and look at the results again thinking about remarks made during the jig saw sessions.
