SJM Foundations Intersection QuizElaine Gilmour
In week 4 of cycle 1 Sharjah Men’s College held an intersection quiz for the Foundations students as a part of the Learning Centers NCHR course. The quiz was held first in the MPH on Tuesday for the Pre-Foundation, Level 1 and Level 2 students, and the second quiz was held the following day for the level 3 students.
The students were arranged in class groups, with each group selecting three members to answer the questions for their group. There were five topic areas each with five questions in each; these were English Language, Sports, The UAE, Our College (about HCT) and The Animal World.
Foundations instructor Mr. Dylan Coady developed the quiz format and materials and he acted as the question master for the first quiz. Ms Nurliyana Isa (also SJM Foundations) posed the questions for the Level 3 competition. It was really enjoyable with students encouraging their class representatives to answer the questions. There were of course some tough questions, as well as, some unexpected answers.
The students enthusiastically challenged to select the correct answers to each question. The Pre- Foundations section 2 team won their section, with Level 3 section 105 team winning theirs. Well done to all the student challengers who joined in, the intersection quizzes were greatly enjoyed by both participating instructors/presenters and students.
