Cultural Shift

January 13, 2016 by Bill Ivey

Early on in our current Humanities 7 unit on science and human behaviour, the students had asked me if I’d be willing to make up a Jeopardy! game for one of our group activities. I agreed, and one of the students asked if she could help write the questions (I said she could, and she contributed four questions to the “Life Science” category). I found a Creative Commons Google Slides template with six categories, and filled in “Physical Science,” “Social Sciences,” “History of Science,” “Process of Science,” and “Scientists” as well as “Life Science.” I set about writing questions, trying to ensure there was a genuine range of challenge and yet each question was theoretically possible for them to know, keeping an awareness that if I wrote the questions well, they would be learning as they went.
