Pulsing is a jigsaw variant that allows students to benefits from the “hive” mind, but also insists on individual accountability in terms of project and task completion.
I use pulsing a lot for research…. I have attached an example I used with a grade 7 class doing an inquiry on creating a fully functional island with government, a people, culture, population centre, etc… .
My belief is that structures such as this address the following learning structure considerations…
- Student Voice
- Broadening Perspectives
