  • examples of curriculums;
  • and ideas for leadership and advisor training.

The exciting book provides examples and support for teachers searching for ways to meet the young adolescent need for building relationships that help them succeed academically and learn behaviors, values, ethics, and self-concepts that will guide their adult lives.
