I used this lesson after Regents (state testing) week. Students, and many people in general, get really nervous when they are asked to take an exam. It can be absolutely deflating when students receive a score less than what they wanted, or believed they could achieve. The effects can be even worse if they failed.
Celeste teaches us that it is okay to fail and that we are capable of overcoming any depression, or anxiety we may face. More importantly, it can open a dialogue about depression in general that is often missing from our classrooms.
