Hosting Guidelines

Here’s some guidelines if you’d like to host a trivia session on your own:


Rules

  • Please no Google or computer assistance. Use only your brain power and each other.

  • Each round should take about 10 minutes or less.

  • Our goal is to have fun--no prizes for top scores.


Suggested Process

Set up a Zoom/Hangouts meeting with your team. Should take about 30-45 minutes to complete play 2 or 3 rounds of trivia.


Zoom/Hangouts Agenda

  • Have an icebreaker question if you want.

  • Let everyone say hello.

  • Go over the rules and decide on a team name.

  • Share the quiz links with everyone in the chat window.

  • Share your screen with the team so you can collaborate.

  • Use the “unpinch” move on your trackpad to zoom in on some of the tiny pictures.

  • When done, click “Submit” and you can view the correct answers.


If you have feedback/suggestions or want to dispute any of the answers, email Mark at mlonergan@bostonpublicschools.org.
