Description

1. This assignment is modelled after the game Who Wants To Be A Millionaire. Use this assignment as the conclusion to the employment unit. The purpose of the game is to have the students reflect on what they have learned.

2. Divide the class into small groups of three or four.

3. Have the student groups review all of the assignments from the unit.

4. Each group should come up with a number of questions and four possible answers to each question. Of course, one answer will be the correct answer for each question. The groups should label the answers to their questions as A, B, C, and D.

5. Each group will hand in the written questions and the answers.

6. These questions will be used to determine the contestant who will answer the 15 questions towards the million-dollar salary and for the 15 questions to win the game.

7. Make a poster board which states the 15 salary levels (\$100/month, \$200, \$300, \$500, \$1000, \$2000, \$4000, \$8000, \$16 000, 32 000; \$64 000, \$125 000, \$250 000, \$500 000, \$1 000 000) and attach it to the wall. Also, make a pointer, which will be moved each time the contestant advances a level.

8. For practise in listening skills, the questions may be asked orally. The teacher may want to write the questions and answers on the board.

9. The students will now be working individually. To determine the contestant who will answer the 15 questions, have the participating students gather around a table. On the table, place a spoon. When the question is asked, the participant(s), who knows the answer to the question, will grab for the spoon. The participant who acquires the spoon must then provide an answer. If the answer is correct, the participant will move onto the 15 salary level questions. If the answer is incorrect, the participant must sit out the next spoon-grabbing question.

10. Be as creative as you want with this game. It is meant for fun and review.

Sub-skills Needed:

1. Co-operative learning strategies
2. Discussion strategies

Materials Needed

1. Poster board and markers
2. Blackboard
3. Spoon

Computer Integration

Use the word processing program to create the different materials needed for the execution of the game. The students will want to create the board on which the 15 different levels of salary are listed, as well as the arrow that points to the different salary levels.

Using the word processor, the students will also create their questions and the four possible answers. These will be used by the teacher to compile a question pool for the game. The students should also be sure to include the correct answers at the bottom of the sheets.
