A SDAIE strategy that my class has successfully implemented was a Jigsaw activity to teach Rhetorical Devices vocabulary. My CT and I assigned vocabulary words to each group; because we had more words than groups, the groups that got easier terms were given two, while more advanced groups were given one difficult term. We asked each group to become "experts" on their terms and come up with an example centered on the concept of "fear". Students made posters and presented to the class. Students filled out their graphic organizers and everyone became knowledgeable on all the terms. It worked really well.
