The Greatest!: Home

The idea…

The resources…

The process…. GID for G.O.A.T.



Open: Who is the G.O.A.T.? How do you decide: Is it the accomplishments on the playing field or is it a player’s greater impact beyond his or her sport? How do you compare one era to another?"

Immerse: How do you define greatness? What are your interests?

Does greatest mean the player you want to be up at bat in the seventh game of the World Series, two outs in the bottom of the ninth? Is it instead the number of an athlete’s victories? His or her longevity? The relative strength of the competition? The athlete’s impact within, as well as beyond, the sport?

Explore: After defining greatness, explore an example of who or what or when or where is the G.O.A.T.?

Identify: Choose your GOAT and get ready to defend.

Gather: Perform Research to defend your choice of GOAT.

Create / Share / Evaluate: Defend to an audience, see what they say.
