When Softball player Sara Tucholsky injured herself during her first home run, the umpire told her that the home run would not count if a pinch runner was brought in and none of her own teammates were allowed to touch her. Players from the opposing team offered to carry her from base to base, and she accepted.
- The other team would have benefitted by not helping Tucholsky. Nobody asked them to, and nobody would have blamed them if they had not. Why do you think they did help?
- What about the opposing team members’ theoretical frameworks, values, and beliefs do you think influenced their decision to help?
- What are values can students learn from their co-curricular experiences? How do you create an environment in which these values are promoted?
- How often do you think outside of the box or encourage the students at your school to think outside of the box?
