My students begged for more of these, so I built another set of Famous Failures, two dozen well-known people who show us that it’s what we do after we fail that determines the quality of our lives. This interactive bulletin board, designed for grades 6-12, 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, libraries, and counseling offices.

Just print these materials and follow the simple step-by-step assembly directions to create an interactive bulletin board featuring 24 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!

Materials you’ll need:

White and colored printer paper


Tape (or glue)
