Innovation: March 7, 2016

Focus: What does the process of innovation feel like?

1. Warming up with the re-invention of the heart (and your answer to the last survey question)

2. Implementing your proposals: Trying, failing, trying again....creating, innovating

3. Closing with tips from innovative people who have failed their way to success:

Will Smith (named by Newsweek as "most powerful actor in Hollywood"; described by Forbes as "most bankable star worldwide")

J.K Rowling (author of the Harry Potter series and first person to become a billionaire from writing books)

Steve Jobs (former CEO of Apple)

Bill Gates (founder of Microsoft)

1. Tomorrow will be the last day of in-class work time on your innovative mini-projects, and we will share them on Wednesday, March 9; decide what you need to accomplish tonight and write it in your calendar.

2. If you'd like to purchase your own copies of Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451, now would be a good time. You need your books on Thursday.

3. Don't worry about your banned book speeches yet; we will return to this on Friday with a more solid time frame.
