Weekly Tribes 2016: F-A-I-L
I saw this posted somewhere and took a screenshot. Here is it transcribed:
If you FAIL, never give up because F-A-I-L means First Attempt In Learning.
END is not the end. In fact, E-N-D means Effort Never Dies.
If you get NO as an answer, remember, NO means Next Opportunity.
To make this into a productive group activity, choose (or better yet, have student brainstorm) some other words that might have a finite or possible negative meaning and have students create new and positive ‘definitions’.
You have just incorporated a little musical/rhythmic (poetry), interpersonal, and verbal linguistic intelligences!
