Some times you have those short class periods or extra time at the end of a test or lesson. So I found a great mini lesson on hard work for you to use with your students. Many students think that they aren’t that smart enough, don’t have the right opportunities, or aren’t talented enough to be successful as their peers. This mini lecture and accompanying quiz proves those ideas wrong. This lesson is presented by Richard St. John and made possible by TED-Ed.com.

- Watch the short video: Why it Pays to Work Hard
- Have the class answer the accompanying “Think” three questions in their journal and then discuss them as a class.
