Woo-Hoo – Sample verbal spontaneous problem

The new verbal spontaneous rule changes have been all the talk. It is important to remind teams that not all verbal problems will have these changes. In any case teams should be ready and practice these changes. Coaches can find a sample problem on CTOM’s spontaneous resources page, provided by CCI.

Alert – spontaneous changes

Odyssey of the Mind announced important changes that can impact process and scoring of some verbal problems at competition. Read about these changes on CTOM’s Spontaneous Resources page. Be sure to train your team and practice, practice, practice. Questions: Email Dave.
