Reflection: Discourse and Questioning Bud, Not Buddy Jeopardy (Chapters 1-8) - Section 4: Closure


This Jeopardy-inspired game for chapters 1-8 for the book Bud, Not Buddy was a real example of letting the question be the answer.  It took some time for my students to get in the habit of answering in the form of a question, but most did get the hang of it.  I allowed my students to use their books as a reference to help locate answers.  When they were able to cite details, examples, and evidence from the text, this proved to them that they were answering text-based questions.
