American West revision: Three Truths and a Lie

I created these quizzes to use with my Y11s last year and have just got round to writing the answer sheets to go with them.

Each question has 4 facts, one of which is, in some way or another, not true. I print out the sheet and work through the quiz with the class – we use the Smartboard clickers for this so I have a question per slide for them. Then, at the end, we go through the answers; students highlight the incorrect response and write the connection. Sheets are then stuck into books for revision.

This is essentially a cunning way of telling the students forty different facts in a quiz-type setting. It works very well with my classes; this may be because of the added excitement of using the clickers for the quiz, though.

I attach my quizzes below. There are three: each one has the student sheet, the answer sheet and a PowerPoint version of my slides. As I think I’ve mentioned before, I am not a lover of PowerPoint and never use it: these are Smartnotes files converted into .ppts, so the formatting may well be dodgy, but at least it’s a starting point.

A final word of warning – an occasional untrue statement among these is personal to my class or my school, so it won’t make sense out of context and you’ll need to tweak it for your school.
