Week 5 Discussion – Man on Fire
After completing this week’s Readings and Resources, access the link below and watch the video clip of Scene 1.
Creasy watched Pita swim and observed that she was the fastest in the water but the slowest one off the blocks. He then coaches her as to what she can do next time. When Creasy mentioned that Pita was a “strong swimmer,” he was being accurate and not using flattery.

- One of the core ideas states “If you’re not at the pool, you cannot do analysis.” Translate that statement into using data analysis at the school where you will be principal.

Your initial response is due by 11:55 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday and should be between 200-250 words. The initial posting should be a statement of your point of view on the question, supported by the required readings.
