While old-school Jeopardy might seem fun at first glance, there is a sharp drop off in student engagement once players figure out that they’ve been mathematically eliminated from winning the game.

What’s worse: teachers often devote hours to dreaming up all of those review questions! This session explores three super low prep, low tech alternatives to the two biggest review game staples of yesteryear.
