You're Fired!

Yes~ Mr. Trump from Celebrity Apprentice~ inspired me to create a weekly project called Classroom Apprentice~ where students choose a project manager and are given a task to complete under a tightdeadline! They love it~ and it allows students todevelop creativity~ teamwork~ leadership and other qualities while reviewing curriculum.

Now~ tell me~ what T.V. shows have served as inspirations for you in the classroom? I had a colleague who began the school year breaking her students into "Survivor" teams~ after being jazzed about the then-newly created reality show. The social studies teacher across the hall loved playing Jeopardy. I've also used Deal or No Deal to teach probability.

Please visit Ed World Community's Innovative Teaching group~ where I am moderating a discussion on using T.V. game shows in the classroom.

See you there!
