Within all of our trials and setbacks are opportunities to be a lighthouse to others.

1001 to 1 is the true story of Cory Weissman, a college basketball player at Gettysburg College, who suffered a stroke and was eventually able to overcome physical and emotional setbacks to return to the court.

1000 to 1 Companion Activities helps students use the story of Cory Weissman to see that we can develop character through adversity and use our story to help inspire others!

In order to complete these activities students will need to watch the movie 1000 to 1, which has a run time of 1 hour and 39 minutes.

WARNING: This is a DEEP LEARNING lesson plan to help students employ a LEADERSHIP approach to SOCIAL AND EMOTIONAL LEARNING.

The activities in this lesson will challenge students to move closer to mastery in the following skills: leadership, cooperation with others, creativity, critical thinking, emotional intelligence, problem solving, and judgment and decision making.

Each of our Companion Activities lesson plans includes the following activities:
  • Reflection: allows students to journal about one of the movie's themes prior to watching.
  • Analysis: questions and prompts to analyze the characters, plot, and climax of the movie.
  • Practice & Discussion: a partner/group activity that takes the principles of the movie and asks students to take action and grow in their own lives.
  • Extension: a RAFT (Role-Audience-Format-Topic) writing prompt to help students apply their new knowledge.
  • Lead for Impact: challenges students to pinpoint how the hero of the story exhibited The 12 Fundamentals of Success and then synthesize how they can apply the lessons to writing their own story.
