Julie Bell's Curry Memory

“One of my favorite Curry memories is Prof. van Hover’s methods class where we played “Ancient Greek March Madness” to learn how to use review games with students. Our cohort went all out and spoke in sports announcer voices while debating who would win in key matchups, like Pythagoras v. Zeus (Zeus would triumph, obviously) and Socrates v. Alexander the Great (I think Socrates was the Cinderella story). I use this activity with my Ancient History students too!”
