Super Teacher Tools: Flash Classroom Jeopardy

One of my closest mentor teachers always said that we learn best when we are playing. I have found that Jeopardy is a favorite game for review and skill practice. In English Language Development (ELD) class I generally use this game to review vocabulary and grammatical forms. It works best when I have table groups or partners on individual teams. Asking students to discuss and evaluate their answers with a teammate increases the level of thinking.

I've found that using a class set of personal whiteboards for students to jot their answers lowers their affective filter because they can easily make adjustments to their responses. I ask them to show their whiteboards after each answer. Not only is this game a great way to reteach and reinforce material it is a great tool for formative assessment.
