A tweet from earlier today:
jeff_shoemaker Love this quote! RT @quotme: "Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and some have greatness thrust upon 'em." - William Shakespeare
What a great quote to use as a springboard into research!Students could research someone (from history, literature, or pop culture) who fits the different descriptors within that quote. For example, Prince William might be considered someone who is "born great", Barack Obama is someone who "achieved greatness", and William Wallace had "greatness thrust upon him". Students could choose their people and through research defend their argument.
Just a wild thought...thanks @jeff_shoemaker for the inspiration!
