So I bought Kwame Alexander's The Playbook: 52 Rules to Aim, Shoot, and Score in This Game Called Life last night. And today, I already used it to teach. In math, I chose a couple of the rules and had the students relate them to math. What WONDERFUL connections they made to their own lives. What a wonderful mindset this man has!
Here are top favorite 3 rules from The Playbook:
- There is no single formula for winning, but you must have a game plan (Rule 30.)
- The size of your heart matters more than your opponent (Rule 2.)
- Starting with a simple move like a lay-up can build confidence as you move through the hard screens and tough challenges on your way to the goal (Rule 37.)
