fast facts learning game
Fast Facts Learning Game
  • On instruction, please SILENTLY read through the questions quickly.
  • The peer teacher reads through each question briskly. Without looking at the answers, the learner tries to answer as best as possible. If the answer is correct, the peer teacher scores 5 points for the learner’s answer. If the answer is not correct, the peer teacher coaches the correct answer by saying it and asks the learner to repeat the answer for 3 points
  • Continue going through the questions and answers, REPEATING questions, until time called.
  • When signaled, change roles quickly. The learner now becomes the peer teacher. Continue until signaled to stop.
  • Tally points for each person; then add points for the pair, adding all the five, three and zero answers.

Impact of a Simple Gift: What if 1,000 Teachers Use the Game
  • Impact: 50,000 to 100,000 fewer classroom disruptions or acts of aggression per year per teacher.
  • Impact: 270 to 540 more hours of fully engaged instruction per teacher per year or 2,700 to 5,400 hours for a decade per teacher.
  • After approximately a decade, the costs averted would enable the state to award a $10,000 bonus to 10,000 teachers. Or, about 15-30 new schools could be built. Or, 200,000 students could have a new laptop. Or, 10,000 graduating seniors could receive a $25,000 college scholarship. Or, one million taxpayers could receive a check for about $200-$300 dollars.
