CLASS 6: EXCELLENCE: NATURE OR NURTURE?

HOMEWORK FOR CLASS 6 (readings, writing, and short group presentation)

Read the following in The Sports Gene:

Introduction, Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6

Write a paragraph each on Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 telling the main point and then providing 3 to 5 outstanding facts from each.

Teamwork and presentation skills are essential for high performance. You’ll be assigned a group to report briefly on one chapter.

Each group will tell the main points of the chapter and answer this question:

What are the main points of the chapter? (Give the most interesting, specific examples that support the pointS?)

What question does the chapter raise for us to think about? What are the implications of this question — why should we care? (How does this question related to you in your world?)
