The following successful people are mention by Geoffrey Colvin in his article “What It Takes to Be Great,“ published by CNN Money.
Step 1: Observe 2-3 videos carefully. Why is this person considered an “elite performer” or expert in his field?
As you watch each video, make observations and inferences—
- I see… / I hear… / I notice…
- I wonder… / This makes me think…
Step 2: Press Comment. Write observations and inferences of at least one video. Make sure you name the artist / performer/ athlete. Do not write your full name or give any other personal information. Sign with a “pen name” or secret code and the class period. Give that information to Ms. McMillan.
I see Pavarotti wears a velvet coat and white shirt with a ruffled collar. I hear him hold a single note for at least 20 seconds. This make me think he is an expert opera singer. I wonder how long he had to train to reach that level of expertise.
