Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

Make Your Mark!

November16

President Barack Obama once said, “Making your mark on the world is hard. If it were easy, everybody would do it. But it’s not. It takes patience, it takes commitment, and it comes with plenty of failure along the way. The real test is not whether you avoid this failure, because you won’t. It’s whether you let it harden or shame you into inaction, or whether you learn from it; whether you choose to persevere.”

With that said, use this inspirational poster created by Peter H. Reynolds to remind students and colleagues—or even family and friends—that despite obstacles, they should keep striving to achieve  goals, to fulfil dreams and of course, to make their mark on this world!

Make Your Mark Poster

Classroom Connection:

Whether via a discussion and/or writing activity, utilize the quote and/or poster to generate creativity and bravery in your classroom. Ask questions such as, “What does ‘make your mark’ mean?” or “How do you envision making your mark on society?”. My bet is that your students will share some pretty interesting responses!

Thanks to Fable Vision Learning for sharing this neat resource!
