Here it comes. The NCAA basketball nuttiness that grips our nation every March. The scene is familiar to most of us; 65 teams, mascots, and fight songs (not to mention their millions of faithful fervent fans) coming together in a prolonged cluster clash of roundball rowdiness to determine the best team in the land. I grew up in Philadelphia where we almost always had a couple local schools in the tourney. Wisely, some of our teachers learned how to leverage the action back into the classroom. One middle school teacher turned us in to geography luminaries by having us map the hometown locale of every team in the tournament. I downright dog-eared my World Book pages getting that one done. Are you getting any constructive classroom mileage out of March Madness?
