Day 123 AIM: How can I use March Madness in a lesson in my classroom?

Do Now: Let’s face it: everyone loves March Madness, and everyone loves teachers. Even Dick Vitale was once a teacher. Bracketology should be part of every child’s education, and commentary from the Duke-Kentucky Laettner shot game should be recited like poetry. Show a clip of Jimmy V running onto the court and have students write a poem about how it makes them feel. Show them the correlation between free-throw percentage and win percentage and have them describe the relationship statistically. Have them fill out a bracket and write a 1 paragraph response for why they made the choices they did. Or better yet, make it a 5 paragraph essay; after all, you have your own bracket to update.
