Jeopardy Review Game.
This publication describes how to conduct a high school class review game based on the television show "Jeopardy." The game is described as applied in a high school health class context but it can easily be adapted to other subjects and ages. The game might appropriately be used as a review session before a unit test. Students form themselves into three groups plus two "helpers" with the teacher administering the game. The game's goals are to review and reinforce knowledge, to discover strong and weak areas of retention, and to review recent learning in a way that is fun and that encourages students to actively participate in their own learning process. The game is designed to help students develop in the areas of thinking skills, teamwork, individuality, and pride in learning. The game requires 2-3 hours of preparation per unit of study and has low implementation costs. The game has been specifically adapted from the television game format. The rewards to the teacher are the pleasure of seeing the students excited about learning and seeing how much they have learned and remembered. A section on resources suggests materials that can be used repeatedly and discusses how long the game takes to conduct. (JB)
