In this activity packet, students explore perseverance through six quotations by influential people. Students use these quotations in a variety of activities like exploring definitions and synonyms, researching background, summarizing, and simplifying and explaining quotations. Packet also includes rubric, speech writing practice, and extra credit poetry activity. This activity is great for the middle of the school year to help students understand the meaning of perseverance.
You can use this as an activity packet for a speech or an essay. I love using quotations and asking students to interpret them based on their personal life experiences. It makes great essays!!
