An extract from the resource:
Working in small groups, choose one of the quotations below to discuss. Then elect a spokesperson to take notes and present the group’s views to the rest of the class:
Don't be discouraged by a failure. It can be a positive experience.

John Keats, English poet (1795-1821)
