Objectives and aims: This study aimed to investigate the impact of using Jigsaw Strategy on improving Reading Comprehension and Communication skills among Eleventh Graders in Rafah. Methodology : The researcher adopted the experimental approach and employed a sample of (76) EFL female learners studying at Al- Quds secondary school in Rafah. The researcher chose two classes of six ones : one class was as an experimental group consisting of (36) students and the second one was as a control group consisting of (40) students. The traditional method was used in teaching the control group, while the jigsaw strategy was used with the experimental one in the first term of the school year (2015-2016). The instruments: The researcher used three tools: a questionnaire to determine the degree of importance of the reading comprehension skills, an achievement test (Pre& post-test) and an observation card to measure the communication skills among students. The collected data were analyzed and treated statistically through the use of SPSS, T-test and the effect size equation was used to measure the effect size of jigsaw strategy on the experimental group in each domain of the test. The results: The findings of the study revealed that there were significant differences in learning English reading comprehension and communication skills between both groups: the experimental and the control ones, in favor of the experimental group due to using the jigsaw strategy. Recommendations: The study recommended the necessity of implementing jigsaw strategy in teaching and learning English reading comprehension and communication skills to bring about better outcomes in students’ achievement. Also, the researcher suggested that further research should be conducted concerning the effectiveness of using jigsaw strategy on different English language skills and other school subjects as well.
