March Madness Writing Freebie

Lessons from March Madness

There are many lessons to be learned from sports! As basketball bounces through March and toward the Final Four, you might want to write about it.  
Check out this article by Sarah Caron.  She writes about the many lessons that can be learned from sports.
Lesson Topics:
Do Your Best
Play with Confidence
Practice, Practice, Practice
It's Not Over Until It's Over also known as Don't Give Up!

I especially like her comment that NCAA basketball players play the game until the buzzer sounds!  The players have to focus on the the game and not the outcome!  I know that teachers and students can take that lesson to heart this time of year!

Why not discuss her article with your students and see what they take away as a life lesson!

I would love to see your writing!  


  1. This week we talked about finding your sweet spot. (Playing with one's shoelaces is not finding the sweet spot.) Great analogies!
