Terri’s Grammar Bowl Rules

The class is divided into 2 teams. A coin is tossed to see which one goes first.

A sentence with a grammar error on a slip of paper is chosen randomly from a basket by the teacher.

The teacher reads the sentence. (an answer consists of identifying the error in the sentence- and correcting it - with a higher level class)

Team 1 has 30 sec. To decide to answer it from listening only- or to look at the question .

Answer correctly from listening Look at the question (30 sec)
5pts (New question is put to team 2) answer correctly
Answer incorrectly from listening 3 points (New question is put to team 2)
Team 2 is referred that question Look at question (30 sec)
answer incorrectly.
Team 2 is referred that question

Team 2 is referred the question: they have 30 sec to answer it from listening or decide to look at the question.

Answer correctly from listening Look at question (30 sec)
4 points (New question is put to team 2) answer correctly
Answer incorrectly from listening 2 points (new question is put to team 2)

and puts it back in the basket. Answer incorrectly

If a repeat question is drawn by the teacher, the team that answers it correctly gets 1 point and the question is retired.
Questions which have been answered correctly are also retired - only questions which could not be answered are recycled.

This cycle repeats until time runs out or sentences run out.
The team with the most points wins.
