Helping teens work through conflicts with each other and adults has never been more important. This comprehensive new resource gives secondary teachers over 150 ready-to-use worksheets to help students build successful working relationships with peers, teachers, parents, and other adults. Each of the five sections-Family Bonding, Character Development, Community Involvement, "It Takes a Whole Village to Raise a Child," and Choices, Changes and Challenges-is filled with activities that help students practice skills in self-improvement and collaborating with others to build more peaceful environments. The activities focus on issues such as rejection, injustice, violence, materialism, and substance abuse and encourage thoughtful, written responses that lead to meaningful dialogue.
