Great Ideas: The Missing Link

The Missing Link

At the start of class with my high-schoolers, I write a brief saying with a Christian theme on the board, leaving out one word. For example: “For success, try aspiration, inspiration, and ___________” (perspiration). I award a small prize to the student who guesses the missing word. We follow with a brief discussion on the point of the thought. (Hint: Try a witty saying if possible).
