What Is Success

Published on

My slides for a CfE lesson on 'What is Success?' — the outcome is the important thing.

In general, this is an exercise in encouraging the learners to define success on their own terms, then finding a way of sharing this with an audience using whatever means they think most suitable/appropriate/fun/they can do.

I set them off on the task, give them a fortnight to complete it, and want to see work they are proud of.

Feel free to take/adapt and share... though if you wish to use this commercially, please contact me for permission. Thanks.
