Open-source photos and micro-biographies of famous people whose early efforts failed. Featured personalities feature such old standards as Henry Ford and Thomas Edison, as well as more contemporary celebrities like Shakira and Michael Jordan. These single-page posters can be off-set with colored paper, adorned with a border, or simply stapled to the wall for the bare-bones, I-finally-put-up-some-darn-decorations look. Complete list of micro-biographies: Henry Ford, Michelle Rhee, Shakira, Thomas Edison, Walt Disney, J.K. Rowling, Michael Jordan, Albert Einstein, Oprah Winfrey, Harrison Ford, Dr. Seuss, Elvis Presley, Cesar Chavez, and Bruce Lee. These posters can also be used with my Behavior Intervention Activity: If at first you don't succeed, a short packet to help students understand that their early failures don't have to be the end.
