The famous speech by Steve Jobs. About being different, taking risks, following your dreams. Includes a link on the cover page to 2 PPTx full of image prompts (21 slides) of the famous people in the video. Can your students name them?

1. Play the video (with or without transcript) and ask students to note the famous people they recognize.

2. Go through the images and who they are. Ask students to choose one and research using the supplied template.

3. Students present their person to the class and argue why they are one of the "crazy ones."
