Reflection: Student Ownership Test Review: Playing "Jeopardy" to Review Story Elements - Section 2: Jeopardy Game: A Review of "The Great Gatsby"


Classroom Jeopardy today was a solid review of the material, we were able to complete every item and still have time remaining to address any other questions students had about the study guide. Additionally, students took the opportunity to assess themselves as they reviewed, many of them were seeing if they knew the answer to each item, as well as the student who was answering. 

Questioning the students this way does engage them, and they take ownership and pride in their responses (this can be seen in the students' reaction in the video above), however, I want to present the answers visually as well, and will redesign this activity using a PowerPoint or other program that allows me to "click" on the board to bring students to the answer, and then reveal the question when they have responded.
