It's Good to Fail.
No, Really!

Once upon a time, there was a boy in Wilmington, North Carolina, who dearly loved basketball. Sure he had talent, but he wasn’t a star. In 10th grade, he didn’t even make the varsity team. But this boy was not about to hang up his jersey. Day after grueling day, he kept shooting, dribbling, practicing. That boy’s name? Michael Jordan.

 

That's how our fascinating Short Read begins. This bite-sized nonfiction text is all about the benefits of failure. (There are many!) We can't wait for you and your students to dive in. We think it will be a great way to start the school year.

Keep an eye out for this text in the upcoming September issue of Scope, which will be hitting classrooms in August. In the meantime, have a very happy summer!
