The news reports in the past months about bullying incidents have become a prominent part of the national discussion. There is no better time to trial Teen Health & Wellness—a vital resource for middle and high school students, teachers, administrators, and parents for building safe and caring communities.
Teen Health & Wellness supports a diverse student population grade 6 and up, including GLBT teens, while providing a set of tools to understand and address issues of bullying and cyberbullying, suicide, school violence, discrimination, cyber ethics, cyber citizenship, and more.
If you are new to Teen Health & Wellness, you will discover why Library Journal described it as "a one-stop self-help resource and a fully interactive online community center for teen health and wellness" and why School Library Journal called the resource "groundbreaking" and gave it an A+.
The Personal Stories throughout Teen Health & Wellness teach empathy and are a powerful way for your students to connect with others who have dealt with and overcome significant challenges.
Dr. Jan's Corner provides answers to real questions from middle and high school students, like:
- Why do some people act nice only when they want something and then mean when they don't?
- Have you ever been that one kid in your grade that is always different, that never seems to fit in with the grade or the school?
- What do you do when someone wants to fight you?
