Stuart's Spectacular Students

This is dedicated to my amazing students. The goal is for each and every one of them to feel unstoppable by the time they walk out of the classroom door for the final time in May. This chronicles their journey; their own Chronicles of Self-Actualization.

Facts Tell ~ Stories Sell - H.O.P. Project

The facts you're getting from your history research are just that, facts. It's up to you to tell your famous person's story.

How do you do this using only six slides? Well, how do YOU think you do this........?

That's right (I feel like I'm a writer for Dora the Explorer). You fit the facts in your head or notecards, and then spit them out in a story for us. The six slides should only be triggers that get you to link to the story in your head. They are not meant to be filled up with one fact after another that you read verbatim during your presentation (yawns and boredom for the viewer).

Remember, facts tell ~ Stories Sell! Just make sure the stories are real. What is his or her real story of struggle and adversity, failure and victory? Dig into the life of this person, see where you can relate in your own young life, and discover lessons that you will use to Dream Big and Do Big for the rest of this year and the rest of your life!

Create more meaning from this project than just a good grade. Dig Deep and Relate!
