Language Objective: I will jigsaw two chapters of Siddhartha collaboratively and generate and answer questions about Siddhartha in a group.
Essential Question: How can generating and answering your own questions deepen your understanding of complex themes and ideas in literary texts?
Discuss the question at your table for 5 minutes. Include at least one piece of textual evidence in your answer.
Once your five minutes are up, pick a scribe to add your findings (and your textual evidence) to this period’s Padlet. (Title: Question you discussed)
2. Opener, Part 2: Switch tables (go to your right), but leave your scribe behind.
You have 5 minutes to discuss the new question at the next table. The original group’s scribe will fill you in on their findings and add yours (and another piece of textual evidence) to the previous group’s padlet.
3. Time to read!
Read your assigned chapter (Ch. 9 “The Ferryman” or Ch. 10 “The Son”). You have 20 min. to read your chapter and take note of the following:
- 3 important pieces of textual evidence
- 2 things that told you something new about Siddhartha’s journey
- 1 question
4. Summarize & Pick a Question!
In your group, spend 5 minutes generating a collective summary of your chapter and choose one question (of your four) to leave on a sticky note at your table.
5. Jigsaw - Round 1
Leave two members of your group behind at your table and take two members of a group that discussed the chapter you haven’t read.
Once you are shuffled, you should have two people who have read Chapter 9 and two who have read Chapter 10 at your table.
Summarize & Discuss:
- Members of original group: share summary, textual evidence and details
- Everyone: discuss and generate an answer for the question the original group left behind. Everyone must contribute to your discussion before you can write down an answer on the Padlet.
6. Jigsaw - Round 2
With your group, move to a different table with a new question for the chapter the original group hasn’t read.
Now it’s the other half of your group’s turn to fill you in on before you discuss and answer the question at your new table.
Look at the previous group’s findings and add yours!
7. Return & Reflect
Return to your original seat and pick one of the questions you discussed this quarter and try to answer it in a final paragraph.
