Has March Madness hit your school? Relating information to the world is helpful to students, especially struggling learners. Try bringing March Madness into the classroom with a little competitiveness. Competitive brackets are great for review and discussion. Whether it is a sweet 16 bracket or an elite 8, you can use competitive brackets in your classroom to help review or spark discussion with your students. For the history teacher, try having your students choose the most influential reformer of the 19th Century (see attached bracket). For the government teacher, try having your students decide the most influential Supreme Court case on society. Competitive brackets are useful in bringing your classroom alive. Helpful Tip: be sure to provide some primary or secondary sources to help your students make their decisions.
