Steps: 
1. Select a problem
(e.g. conflict in the Middle East).

2. Discuss problem solving strategies.

3. Introduce the problem to the students.

4. Have students clarify the problem (restate
it).

5. Assign students to "stakeholder groups"
or roles (e.g. Israelis, Palestinians, Americans, Saudis)
to develop solutions or positions.

6. Move students to jigsaw groups comprised
of every role (i.e. Israelis, Palestinians, Americans,
Saudis) to try to reach an agreement or a solution to
the problem.

7. Debrief.
