I actually did this lesson when I was being observed. My students were writing biographies and I did a mini-lesson on overcoming obstacles. Wilma overcomes may obstacles in her lifetime, so this book was a great example.

I thought this book was great! It only goes to show that you can do anything you want to do if you work hard and have faith that you can do it. I think Wilma Rudolph was a great role model for women and girls and the whole world. I hope to grow up and be as strong as Wilma.

How Wilma did it was concentration and percerverence. If she can be someone who had polio then became the fastest woman in the world then you can do anything!
