Not just another social action or service project how-to book, this supplemental educational resource helps adults teach young people how to think about a broad range of social issues, not just what to think about them. Thematic lessons and inspired examples help students in grades 6-12 comprehend long-term change and the costs of sustainability (or the even higher costs of not working toward change). Lessons are adaptable to curricula in science, civics, character education, and life skills. Experiential activities serve as inspiration for further social action. This resource is excellent for use in a structured class, but it is also useful in advisories and homeroom periods, out-of-school programs such as Scouts or Odyssey of the Mind, and volunteer opportunities in faith-based settings.
