Definition According to Aronson et.al (1978) in Buehl (2001), the jig-saw technique involves students in reading different selections and then sharing what they have learned with a group or whole class. The jig-saw technique can be used in a number of ways in the classroom. Jig-saw problem solving (Kagan,2009) will be used in teaching reading of a narrative text. In this case, students work in team (the number of team members can be various) and each student receives one of the clues to solve the team problem. Everyone must share the information on their clue card because the team can only reach a solution by connecting the information from all clues. So, students could be jigsawed to read different sections of a text (a narrative text).
