Help Students Learn How to Deal With Failure
Failure can be very frustrating to students. It can make them feel stupid and want to give up. Learning from the failures of others can help them develop coping strategies and skills for when they face failures of their own. This set is also a powerful way to help students see failure as part of the the learning process.

A writing prompt has been included at the end to monitor comprehension and promote reflection.
