Great Article On “Being The Best At Anything” & How I’m Using It In Class

| 0 comments

7 Secrets Top Athletes Can Teach You About Being The Best At Anything is an interview with David Epstein at Barking Up The Wrong Tree.

It’s a great article and very accessible to students, though it will need some obvious editing.

Here’s the writing prompt I plant to use with it. Feel free to make suggestions on how I can improve it…

The author says these “seven secrets” can help anyone get better at anything, including sports and academics. Pick at least two of them and explain what they are and if you agree or disagree that applying those practices can help you improve at anything. To support your opinion, you may use examples from your own experiences, your observations of others, and any of your reading (including this article).

I’m adding this post to The Best Posts On Writing Instruction.
