Throughout the novel, the author includes 10 “Basketball Rules”. These rules pertain to basketball, but are clearly lessons that are geared towards life in general. For example, Basketball Rule #1 says, “In this game of life your family is the court, and the ball is your heart. No matter how good you are, no matter how down you get, always leave your heart on the court.” For this activity, students will choose three of the Basketball Rules and explain and illustrate them. To differentiate, teachers may assign just one rule or more than 3.
