“Literacy practices associated with interest or involvement in sports can be drawn upon to develop academic skills.”

“We have known for some time that sports involvement teaches young women and men the skills of teamwork, cooperation, delayed gratification and sacrificing self interest for the greater good of the team.”

“Athletes, more than many others, have found ways to work together across multiple lines of difference including race, ethnicity, religion, and socioeconomic status.”

“Use young people’s affinity with sports to engender critical readings of the world --informed ways of reading the world as if it were a text.”

“My first piece of advice for those teachers who are not coaches is to establish powerful relationships with the coaches at their schools. It is important for teachers to see coaches as allies rather than enemies.”

“Sports participation also plays a major role in how young people view themselves.” -- online presentation maker
