Dear Hannah: LEarning (Now You Know History Quiz Bowl (NYK HQB))



 
Dear Hannah,

The NOW YOU KNOW History Quiz Bowl is a gameshow tells the story of 25 ordinary people who did extraordinary things.

This game is a walk through history, and the embracing of what our world calls diversity, sensitivity, and inclusion.

Writing the game helps me LEarn about and practice all three - at the same time.

It is my hope that playing the game helps us to all do the same.

Love,


Daddy

"LEarning (Now You Know History Quiz Bowl (NYK HQB))"
By Derrick Brown
8-11-2017

The NOW YOU KNOW History Quiz Bowl is a gameshow tells the story of 25 ordinary people who did extraordinary things.

These people have special connections to each other - and to us.

Our connections to their lives, stories and accomplishments help us to relate to them.

This allows them to disciple us - even though we may never meet them face-to-face.

The game is played in the tradition of "Jeopardy" - with a few stylistic departures.

First, I serve as host.

My role is to be the griot.

Each gameboard selection affords me the chance to introduce a person and tell their story - in 15-20 seconds.

Each story ends with a common knowledge "answer" that contestants then "question" for points.

Our second key departure - if contestants do not phrase their question properly, we chew the meat, spit out the bones, and keep LEarning.

Questions, answers, and phrasing are all of secondary importance.

The story and LEarning are our priorities.

Roll the demo ...

Each of these stories used to appear as posters on the walls of my office when I was a school administrator.

They were great conversation pieces, and inspirations to all who engaged them - especially me.

Please note that I call this a History Quiz Bowl.

That is very intentional, and I fully embrace the irony there.

Human nature and conventional wisdom suggest that once the stories of two Black people are shared (within 5 minutes), then this becomes a "Black History" Quiz Bowl.

Au contraire, mon frere et ma chere.

This game is a walk through history, and the embracing of what our world calls diversity, sensitivity, and inclusion.

Writing the game helps me LEarn about and practice all three - at the same time.

It is my hope that playing the game helps us to all do the same.

Selah.


About Derrick Brown (Principal Consultant)
 

I am Keisha's husband, and Hannah's father.

My *other* passion is empowering people via methods that balance skill & will, analysis & synthesis, ideas & execution, and activity & achievement.

I am the product of my mentoring relationships, peacemaking (and peacekeeping), and problem-solving ability.

I am a publisher, filmmaker, executive coach & registered mediator with engineering degrees from Clemson and Georgia Tech.

My education began when I finished school.

After school, I enrolled in a lifelong curriculum that includes the following classes ...

  • ministry (serving people)
  • entrepreneurship (developing solutions that serve people)
  • stewardship (taking care of relationships, possessions, talents, body, mind, and time)
  • literacy (reading & writing skills)
  • numeracy (math skills)
  • language (communication skills)
  • self-expression (sharing "who you are")
  • self-identity (knowing "who you are")
  • analysis & synthesis (solving problems & sharing solutions)

KnowledgeBase is a ministry that has evolved from wisdom earned through lessons learned.

I want to share this wisdom to build teams of "triple threat" fellows - mentors, mediators, and problem solvers.

We will collaborate in simple, powerful ways that allow us to help people.

I now know that power is work done efficiently (with wise and skillful use of resources, interests, communication, and expertise).
