  • Each group member reads the article(s) assigned.
  • After each group member has read their article,
    they are to get together with others that have
    been assigned to the same article, and become
    experts together. Take notes about assigned
    topic.

18
TEACHING WITH THE JIGSAW METHOD?
  • Defined Just as in a jigsaw puzzle, each
    piece--each student's part--is essential for the
    completion and full understanding of the final
    product. If each student's part is essential,
    then each student is essential and that is
    precisely what makes this strategy so effective.

1980S CULTURE DURING THE COLD WAR
  • The Cold War was reflected in culture through
    music, movies, books, television and other media.
    One element of the Cold War often seen relates
    directly or indirectly to the threat of a nuclear
    war. Another is the conflict between the
    superpowers in terms of espionage. Many works use
    the Cold War as a backdrop, or directly take part
    in fictional conflict between the U.S. and the
    U.S.S.R. The period 1953-1962 saw Cold War themes
    first enter the mainstream culture as a public
    preoccupation.
