Classhack: Quiz Show

DaveJeopardy1Today’s class hack is a gift from Jason Lee, who teaches information technology classes at our college. Jason has found that friendly competition can contribute to pleasure in learning, so he uses a technique borrowed from one of television’s longest-running game shows, Jeopardy. Using a format similar to the popular quiz show, Jason helps his students acquire and retain information relevant to his subject. He’s found that attention spans are longer and energy levels higher when students participate in the game.
