MONDAY – GETTING STARTED
In this section, students will be given an overview of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate - the game they'll be using for the week. Emphasis is placed on researching the game's fighters and practicing/training to master the fighter's movements - an important part of eSports success.

TUESDAY – SQUAD STRIKE PRACTICE
In this section, students will investigate "Squad Strike" mode. Squad Strike allows for 3-on-3 or 5-on-5 battles.

WEDNESDAY – SMASH DOWN PRACTICE
In this section, students will investigate "Smash Down" mode. Smash Down mode consists of a series of matches, but once a fighter is used, it can't be used again. This forces players to experience new fighting styles and to devise strategies accordingly.

THURSDAY – SMASH TOURNEY
In this section, students will use the research and training they have conducted, and begin to compete in Super Smash Bros. Tourney Mode.

FRIDAY – PLAYER’S CHOICE
In this section, students will get to choose which type of game mode they would like to play. Students can continue tournaments from the previous day, or can begin new tournaments.
