Oh, the Places You’ll Go! is a classic Dr. Seuss story about the journey of life. The main character sets off on an amazing adventure out of town where he finds himself in many different situations. He learns that no matter what obstacles he is faced with he must pick himself up, dust himself off, and continue towards his destination. In this module, students will explore the theme of perseverance with both fictional and real-life characters, identifying strategies they can keep in their pocket as they travel down the road of life.
