Reflection: Performance Tasks Reviewing for the Final Exam in Style - Section 2: STUMP Trivia


The only way today's activity could have gone better is if the whole class period was dedicated to it, which I will do in the future. We were pretty rushed in the end and didn't get to the last question. Nonetheless, it was a great way to review the year in a fun and relatively orderly fashion. I've tried Jeopardy and Family Feud scenarios in the past, and this was better by far. Everyone was involved at all times and they had to rely on each other for answers. I heard several groups reasoning their way to an answer, until they finally decided (and often got it right!). Updating the scores was also a great motivator. One group was leading after the third round and showed off a bit, but fell behind after the grammar round, so they had to step it up again. It isn't enough just to get the answer right; a group needs to outsmart the other groups with the way they wager. I had music playing while they were answering and it was a great last class.
