You’re Inspired!

AN EDIT: In July 2015, one of the most colourful and loved stars of The Apprentice, Stuart Baggs, passed away. We made this resource two years prior to this and so his wonderful quotes are very much part of what follows. We mean no disrespect by these and we trust that it is appropriate to still include these great quotes from someone who was much-loved and inspired many. We take the fact that many of the messages online left after his passing referred to his ‘fields of ponies’ quote as a sign that it is not disrespectful. We certainly include it with fondness.

’You’re Inspired!’ is a resource to help you teach similes and metaphors, through the medium of The Apprentice. We know this might not go down well with the Secretary of State, but it’s long been our opinion that the best way to get students learning is to get them interested. And if some of the outlandish quotes that contestants come out with on The Apprentice get them interested, then so be it!

You can download ‘You’re Inspired!’ as a PDF (2.8MB) or as Powerpoint slides (2.3MB) (right-click on either of the links to save).

We hope your class can write with slightly more panache!
