Episode Info:

One of the things I learned from hosting last year’s season of #pechatwhich focused entirely on the Danielson Framework for Teacher Evaluation – was that we should always be working towards putting our students in the driver’s seat of their own learning.

It can be tricky to design lessons and instruction that not only keeps students engaged in their learning but that really helps create a shift from teacher-centred experiences to student-centred ones. I know that this is something that I have struggled with in my teaching, especially in lessons and units that are very content-heavy in which I feel like I really need to be guiding my students through the learning step-by-step to ensure that it is all being properly introduced.

In those situations, I’ve found that the jigsaw method can really go a long way in setting up a lesson structure in which I can remove myself from the equation a bit all while still having my students highly engaged and taking ownership of both their classmates’ learning as well as their own.

Learn more about the jigsaw method in this episode of The #PhysEd Show Podcast! Don't forget to check out the show notes over on's blog for more details, links, and resources that will help you dive deeper into this topic.

Happy Teaching!
