Amelia Earhart Leadership Presentation
Transcript of Amelia Earhart Leadership Presentation
By Mrs. Lambert
Moment of Perseverance
Primary Source #2:
Question #1 - What motivated Earhart to become a pilot in a predominantly male profession during this time period?
“Everyone has ocean's to fly, if they have the heart to do it. Is it reckless? Maybe. But what do dreams know of boundaries?”
Primary Source #1:
This primary source is a newspaper clipping from when Earhart went missing in 1937 after her attempt to fly around the world. This is important because it shows the impact that she had on society during this time period. It proves that she had become an inspiration to men and women alike.
Question #2 - What was her motivation to then want to become the first female to fly across the Atlantic Ocean?
Newspaper clipping from 1932 marking in history when Earhart became the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. This was known as the turning point of her career when she came to be known as an "inspiration" to both women and men.
In 1920, she was onboard a plane for the first time, as a guest of a pilot at an "aerial meet" in Long Beach, California. She was in the air only 10 minutes, but that experience changed her life. "As soon as we left the ground, I knew I myself had to fly," she later said.
Earhart's metaphor of flying across oceans to pursuing dreams. This shows us that she knew what she was doing came with dangers, but she wasn't going to let that stop her from reaching her goals and dreams she had set for herself.
