Iron Chef Lesson Design

You know what a JIGSAW lesson is:

How can I do it?

In its simplest form, the Jigsaw instructional strategy is when:

1. Each student receives a portion of the materials to be introduced;
2. Students leave their "home" groups and meet in "expert" groups;
3. Expert groups discuss the material and brainstorm ways in which to present their understandings to the other members of their “home” group;
4. The experts return to their “home” groups to teach their portion of the materials and to learn from the other members of their “home” group

We can take the JIGSAW and MODERNIZE it:

The Iron Chef Lesson plan makes learning, loud, collaborative, memorable and kids will OWN their learning. It's a flavor of "flipping" that makes 1:1 far more effective.
