22WANT TO GET TO COLLEGE? LEARN TO FAIL! Pair Share: Prediction – What is the author’s purpose?Want to Get Into College? Learn to Fail Education Week, February 1, 2012 By Angel B. Pérez Genre: Commentary1 I ask every student I interview for admission to my institution, Pitzer College, the same question,“What do you look forward to the most in college?”I was stunned and delighted recently when a studentsat across from me at a Starbucks in New York City and replied, “I look forward to the possibility of failure.” Of course, this is not how most studentsrespond to the question when sitting before the personwho can make decisions about their academic futures, but this young man took a risk.
23WANT TO GET TO COLLEGE? LEARN TO FAIL! Pair Share: Whose perspective is addressed?2 “You see, my parents have never let me fail,” he said.“When I want to take a chance at something, they remind meit’s not a safe route to take. Taking a more rigorous course or trying an activityI may not succeed in, they tell me, will ruin my chances at college admission.Even the sacrifice of staying up late to do something unrelated to school,they see as a risk to my academic work and college success.”
