I am doing a Jigsaw Reading activity for Conflicts and Cooperations during Westward Expansion. I added a "cheat sheet" for doing a Jigsaw read for my teacher friends that have never done this before.
By just copying and pasting the support document "The Students MUST KNOW" information into Word documents, I am enabling my students to see all the testable vocabulary and all the information is right there for them. No more searching for "great" articles off of the internet. USE YOUR RESOURCES--don't work harder, work smarter!
