Los Angeles, Chicago, NYC: Urban Quiz Bowl guidelines below
Divide the class into 5 teams of 5 or 6 or 7 by alpha roll.
Groups 1 and 2 face off and are read, alternately, 31 questions.
A student is chosen to pick the questions at random and hand them to Mrs Hanson to be read.
Alternate the reading: question 1 is read to group 1. Question 2 is read to group 2. Question 3 is read to group 1.
Each team may confer with the classmates in the group and consult their notes before giving their answer.
If a question is not correctly answered by a team, then the other team is given that question.
A student scorekeeper will keep the totals current on the white board with a marker.
The winning team will face the next group. Continue until one group is the victor. Each member of the victorious group gets 3 bonus points.
We didn't get the bailout we needed so as to purchase the Smart Cars as prizes. So it goes.
