Included in this product are sixteen inspirational posters that detail the failures of otherwise successful (and famous) people. Each poster contains a picture of the person as well as a short explanation of how that person failed before they achieved success.
I have used these posters at the beginning of each school year to help create a positive classroom community so my students understand that failure is nothing more than a first attempt; their effort is more important than the outcome.
Rather than hanging these posters before students arrive, I have found it more effective to have students read and discuss the posters together. It is a great way to start the year!
