Putting it Together

  1. When you see that each group has worked their way through their documents and the analysis questions at the end (refer back to the directions at the beginning of each Document Study), tell your students about their next steps:
    • Once you have selected one or two documents and written captions for those documents, decide what you want to teach your classmates about what you just learned about the March on Washington. What aspect(s) of the March on Washginton did your group focus on? How have these documents shaped your understanding of the March on Washington? What did you learn about the complex answers to your group's question? (Your group's question is the question that serves as the title of your Document Study.)
    • Be sure every member of your group is ready to talk about the documents you chose and the complex answers to your group's question.
  2. Jigsaw: When the groups are ready, transition into a Jigsaw activity. Bring the class back together and then divide students into three new groups (A, B, and C). Each of the new groups should include a cluster of students from Group #1, a cluster of students from Group #2, and a cluster of students from Group #3. Once in their new groups, each cluster of students should have a turn teaching about the documents their (original) group studied and the complex answers to their group's question.
