Great examples of people who are widely viewed as successful and their steps to becoming who they are. I was grateful for the examples to give to my children as I didn't have time to do the research and needed examples of how "failure" is a stepping stone not a stopping point.
This kit was fantastic. My children worked on famous people that had an element of interest to themselves and then shared what they learnt. They then went on to study someone who they admire and produced their own multi modal presentation. They loved this inquiry.
Student mistakes are awesome
My students thought it was awesome. They enjoyed reading about successful people who saw failure as a step needed to be taken. I want them to see that mistakes are learning moments and this hopefully will show them that we all need to fail to succeed. Thanks
Fab famous failures
It's a real help to show young people we can all achieve
Famous Failures who didn't get stopped
I loved having famous people who our interns (with developmental disabilities) may be familiar with and see that they are not the only people who experience difficulties in life. That many people are able to overcome barriers and be successful if they just keep at it.
