About This Lesson

Shift Failure Overview

Shift Failure is classroom resource and lesson package (5 total lessons) that brings the concept of failure into our classrooms and engages students to learn about how each failure that they encounter presents an opportunity to grow and learn. Students will look at the stories of famous personalities that have encountered failure and reflect on how these individuals used these failures to create growth opportunities that led to great success. They will also participate in a project-based learning activity that will lead them through the identification of an issue to solving the issue, while also learning from the possible failures that occur during the execution of the solution.

This resource includes detailed plans, blackline masters and guides for assessment.
