This study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of using Jigsaw Strategy on Palestinian tenth graders’ English grammar learning. To achieve this aim, the researcher adopted the experimental approach and employed a sample of (72) EFL male learners studying at Beit Lahia Basic School "A" for Boys in the Gaza Strip. The researcher chose two classes of four ones which he was teaching: one class was as an experimental group consisting of (36) students and the second one was as a control group consisting of (36) students. one. The traditional method was used in teaching the control group, while the jigsaw strategy was used with the experimental one in the second term of the school year (2013-2014). As a main tool for the study, the researcher used an achievement test of four domains with (32) items designed and validated to be used as a pre and post test. Being used as a pre-test, the achievement was meant to prove groups equivalence. Besides, it was used as a post-test to measure any possible differences between the target groups. The collected data were analyzed and treated statistically through the use of SPSS, T-test and Mann Whitney test to identify the direction of the effectiveness. Furthermore, the effect size equation was used to measure the effect size of jigsaw strategy on the experimental group in each scope of the test. The findings of the study revealed that there were significant differences in learning English grammar between both groups: the experimental and the control ones, favoring the experimental group , and this is due to using the strategy. In the light of those findings, the study recommended the necessity of implementing jigsaw strategy in teaching and learning English grammar 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.
