On the Court with...Michael Jordan

Students use a decision-making model as they make simulated choices about their future education. In this decision-making lesson, students read a book about Michael Jordan and discuss choices he made. Then, students examine how their choices represent an investment in human capital. Groups build a tower with paper cups and are given physical handicaps based on investments in human capital through their higher education.
