For HW, students must write in the correct article that has been blanked out of the Materials: markers, Article Correction worksheet, New York Times article, listening CD Anticipated Problems: Ive only done a reading jigsaw in workshops, never with students before, so Im not sure how the students will respond.

Contingency Plans (what you will do if you finish early, etc.): If students finish early, I Have another listening activity to do with them. If things go later than planned, the listening activity can be postponed until the next class.

Post-Lesson Reflections: Overall, I am pleased with how the lesson went. Students really got into the error correction, I think because it was about their own sentences. The reading jigsaw also went well, although at the end during the class discussion, I had a hard time getting volunteers to explain what their section of the article was about. However, they were able to complete the task and also did a nice job writing the summary. We didnt get to the listening activity, which is fine. The next class can begin with that instead.
