Life is hard and you will fail. It’s what you do next that determines the quality of your life. That’s the message I hope students learn from this interactive bulletin board that celebrates the growth mindset of famous figures who weren’t defeated by early failures. This message, of course, is echoed all over social media, but I wanted to try to find reliable sources to back up what life experience has taught me to be true. To that end, I did some research and built these interactive bulletin board materials for our classrooms.
Just print these materials and follow the simple step-by-step assembly directions to create an interactive bulletin board featuring 20 historic and modern examples of famous people who picked themselves up after early career failure. Better yet, have a student volunteer/T.A. build this for you! Perfect for libraries and secondary classrooms.
Materials you’ll need:
White and colored printer paper
Tape (or glue)
