Description:

Issues and themes that target the pre-teen mind are the focus of this MIDDLE SCHOOL VERSION of Chicken Soup for the Soul Lesson Plans. From a first kiss, to being taunted, to dealing with feelings, to reaching out to the elderly, the ups and downs of the middle years are explored through story and writing. Versatile stories and a wide range of activities can fill a spare two minutes at the end of class, or expand to a year-long project to help the homeless. With all Chicken Soup for the Soul books, the pure pleasure of reading is a primary goal. At this level, accessing related feelings and writing about them are additional targets. Student empowerment skills are also presented at this critical, and seemingly out-of-control time. Additional stories are included to encourage teachers and parents who deal with children of this magical age.
