What would happen if a classroom teacher could carry the same values as a sports coach? For example, I tell my students, “We have an Open House game on Thursday night” or “We have a Back to School Night” kick-off and every single player must show up. We have practice on Saturday from 1-3pm and every single player shows up. What is the agenda for Back to School Night and Open House? What is their value?

Last night was open house. 7 students from Period 1 came. 15 students were at practice.
