A great resource for engaging students in cross-cultural, “real-world” stories of teens from around the world. Best for grades 7-9 (but can be used grades 10-12 too), they delve deep into the heart of far-flung places to explore local history, culture, and teens creating social change in their communities. Great for social studies (covers many standards) or Language Arts classes (reading and vocab). Free Services offered: Two full unit curricular programs (2-3 weeks each) or short stories featured in their E-Magazine (1-2 day activities).
