During class this week I used the SDAIE strategy of Cooperative Learning in class, by having the class get into groups and jigsaw five different principles of the US constitution. They had to read a small paragraph, and then make a poster representing their specific principle. Each poster needed to have a picture or symbol which they felt matched their portion of the constitution. Then, the groups would have to present their poster to the rest of the class, while the other students filled out a graphic organizer.
This represents a SDAIE strategy in that the students utilize group communication skills, graphic organizers, and a reduction teacher talk.
