Later they selected one of Gaudi’s work and created a scale model. They were given four class periods to build it in class and some took it home to finish it at home. This would allow them to pay attention to detail. Later, using the collaborative strategy of jigsaw, students shared the different components that each investigated and were able to grasp Gaudi’s whole work and influence in the Culture of Spain.
Therefore, I used the collaborative learning using the “jigsaw" technique to help students create their own learning. I arranged students in groups. Each group member is assigned a different piece of information on Gaudi’s work and influence in Spain. Group members then joined with members of other groups assigned the same piece of information, and research and/or shared ideas about the information they found. Later, students returned to their original groups to try to "piece together" a clear picture of the cultural impact Antoni Gaudi had in Spain..
