This expository, non-fiction lesson engages students in a discussion about self-esteem and the importance of failure. I have provided links to several articles and youtube videos that will challenge students to think critically about the topic. The questions provided require them to illustrate their comprehension of the readings and to extend their understanding as they make connections to their own lives. Options and rubrics are included for written assignments.
This zip file includes handouts and answer keys for student questions, as well as a series of slides that will guide you through your class discussion.
