IT 10: Inspirational Quote

For the first assignment, you will select a quote from a famous person that motivates learning and/or inspires towards success. Your quote will be published on a letter-sized paper, backed by a sheet of construction paper, and be posted on the walls around the classroom for the remainder of the year. You will also need to prepare a 30-second presentation explaining what the quote means and why it is meaningful to you.

Tasks:

  1. Go to BrainQuote.com.
  2. Refine by topic and select a school-appropriate quote that motivates learning and/or inspires you towards success. Please no song lyrics. The quote that you select should be unique–something nobody else has.
