Bowling Sheets

Found In: games, routines & procedures, review & test prep, tests & quizzes

As I’m taking attendance, I give a very short quiz that reviews old material or last night’s homework.

I use a format for reviewing and grading the quizzes based on the scoring system for a bowling game. When our local bowling alley went to automatic, computerized scorekeepers I got the idea of using their old overhead scoring sheets for this quiz. I randomly select 10 of the students’ quizzes each day. If eight out of the 10 quizzes are all correct, I then draw out two more to see if they “pick up the spare.” I then keep score for them on one overhead bowling sheet, and they compete against my other classes. The winning class gets a little something extra just for them.

I have found that more students review yesterday’s work right before class and have fewer tardy students. Students really enjoy it, and it works well with all levels.
