I’ve Learned That...

Share some thoughts from Live and Learn and Pass It On by H. Jackson Brown, Jr. If you don't have access to this book, here are a few excerpts:

  • I've learned that there's no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs. -age 48
  • I've learned that my teacher always calls on me the one time I don't know the answer. -age 9

Have your students write a small list of things they have learned--have them share with the class.
