This Famous Failures activity helps students understand that failure is expected and necessary in order to succeed. Through this activity students learn that famous people had to overcome obstacles and persevere in order to find success. My students are always amazed when they hear about Michael Jordan and Walt Disney. This lesson helps to give them confidence to become academic risk takers in my class.
