Product Description
This presentation contains a 61 slide PowerPoint lesson in editable PPT format with a work paper and teacher notes

When I grew up, failure was something you tried to avoid, or at least hide. Today in marketing , we are taught to embrace failure, nay, encourage it…learning from failure is apparently the best way for a business to move forward. All this is backed up by research upon research. These articles encourage us to look at failure, not as a something negative, but as an experiment with interesting and unexpected results that should be learned from and stored away for future reference (and shouldn’t, under any circumstance, reflect personally on our: inefficiency, inability to understand simple instructions, lack of concentration, incapacity to follow things through, weakness for anything sweet, clumsiness, lack of diplomacy and the uncanny ability to ‘put our foot in it’ at any given moment).
In this lesson, I’ve separated the cases in which failure is educational and enlightening, like the exciting accidental discovery of bubble wrap, from ‘half glass empty’ situations, like a bad breakup (which teaches you mostly urban orientation - the odd drive by to his new girlfriend’s house for egging and what not).
Basically, the more personal the failure, the less we’re inclined to learn from it – as if we needed research to tell us that…
Discussion points:
- Idioms (surprisingly many)
- Grammar use of simple past vs present perfect
- The more Personal the failure (like relationships) the more it’s difficult for us to learn from it
- Thoroughly discussing everyone’s failures (teachers need to have fun too..)
- Famous historical failures
- famous product failure and great accidental successes.
