Jeopardy – was used in the final day of class as a way to wrap-up all the topics we used. I would set up the white board with the categories and dollar amounts. I also would have two Daily Doubles and more recently have added a final Jeopardy question. The ‘prize’ is that the winning team gets the maximum class participation score for that day (basically a double A grade), whereas the losing team gets a regular A.
I update some of the questions year to year. As you can see, they are a mix of course ideas and fun topics. I would read each question to the class with one exception. For the category ‘Before and After’ (which is the hardest), I would put the question up on an over-head projector so that they could read and think about it.
