[TIPS] A GREAT tale of sportsmanship

http://www.npr.org/templates/story/story.php?storyId=4751391

 

This is an old report, but one that I’ve never forgotten since I first heard it in July of 2005. Here is Frank Deford telling a wonderful story about Jack Nichlaus at a British Open Tournament years ago.

 

Save this for AFTER Christmas. It’ll keep. But, it’s a great story of sportsmanship that should be heard by players and parents alike. That Jack Nichlaus is a class act.

 

Present this story to your students in the form of a multiple choice poll, with one option being what Jack did, and the other two choices being the other possible options. See how many students would do what Jack did.

 

THERE’S a writing prompt in this, too, don’t you think?
