Get Real! a reality project for teenagers
Beth B. Decker
We want and need children to grow up to be productive and happy adults. In order to do that in the complex 21st century they are growing into, they need concrete information to process, discuss and reflect upon. They must develop solid literacy skills that will help them adapt and learn whatever, whenever they need to.
Get Real! a reality project for teenagers was created by a teacher, working with students, that seemed more frightened about their futures than excited. She wanted to help them build realistic pictures of their lives.
Get Real! a reality project for teenagers includes lessons in areas of thinking, learning, reading, and writing on topics like:
Who are YOU? What kind of human do you want to be? What kind of life will you build for yourself?
What is education and learning really? And why does it matter?
Tools for independent learning and thinking
Setting Goals and Priorities
Beliefs, Hopes and Dreams
Employability Skills and Habits
College and other options

Happiness and Life Satisfaction
Get Real! a reality project for teenagers can be completed alone, along with the Parent Companion or used in classrooms grades 8-12, and includes free access to revolutionary learning videos.
