The jigsaw cooperative learning technique is used to complete activities on the purposes not covered so far in the learning activities. The teacher organises students into groups to complete their information table. Each member of the group is allocated a purpose and an example of a text that suits their allocated purpose. All the students who have a text that entertains, for example, are grouped together to annotate their texts. The group discusses the structural and language features of the text as they deconstruct it, the teacher providing support to each of the groups. When they have annotated the text they were given, the group then decide on the information that needs to be put into the table under the headings; text type, purpose, structure, grammar and visual. The original groups reform and each 'expert' teaches the other members of their original group about the features of the text they were allocated. All students complete their table.
