The Iceberg Illusion of Success

We recently came across the following Sketch Note on Twitter and were so impressed by both the presentation mode and the message that we just had to share it here. The concept is pretty simple. When we view a successful person or a successful event or a successful organization, we see SUCCESS. But what we don't see are all the ingredients that went into baking all that success. Behind every successful person, event, or organization are traits like hard work, dedication, discipline, persistence, and sacrifice. We tend to expect these traits even though we may not daily witness them. But then there are a few traits that you might not expect such as failure and disappointment. 

The Sketch Note provides a great reminder to teachers, students, and all others that success doesn't just happen. The ice doesn't just form above the water without a whole lot of other practices being established and practiced below the water. Success is built on top of dedication, hard work , persistence, discipline, sacrifice, and (yes) failure and disappointment.

Special thanks to artist and creator Sylvia Duckworth for putting this fundamental idea into a Sketch Note. You can view more of Sylvia's incredible Sketch Notes on Flickr at

By popular demand, assignments that were distributed via Doctopus (e.g. to a roster) now offer multiple embargo modes.  This means teachers can pick and choose to meet the context of the assignment / place in the assessment cycle, e.g. high stakes, low stakes, formative, etc.  

Based on a vote in the Doctopus community (77% in favor), the default embargo state is now "comment only" which means that students can see teacher comments as they are being made, and they can still "make suggestions" even though the doc is technically embargoed for grading.
