This comprehensive teacher's guide is designed to accompany Second Story Press' Kids’ Power Series. Just as the series tells the stories of children who have taken action on issues that are important to them, the guide is designed to help educators and students do the same. This resource provides a step by step guide to help students take action in their own community. It can easily be integrated into everyday junior level classroom programming for language skills, arts,social studies, and character education. It is also appropriate for adaptation in intermediate and senior level classrooms. It uses the four books in the series: Maggie and the Chocolate War, Yeny and the Children for Peace, Lacey and the African Grandmothers, and Shannen and the Dream for a School. The material can be applied to other books and texts that address local, national, or global social justice issues.
