  • Excuse Busters!  A great way to start the new year!  What are excuses? Why do we give them? 'Excuse Busters!' will explore all these questions and more. What will you come out knowing at the end of this assignment? More about yourself and a plan to help you get where you're going- without excuses!

  • Eleanor Rigby Project: Who are the homeless? We see them on the streets, cocooned in doorways, pushing overloaded shopping carts, standing on corners announcing their troubles on cardboard signs. Old, young, men, women...Who are they? Where did they come from? Explore the answers with students around the world.

Arranged by type as well as author, reviews include a brief summary of the book, a star rating, and an explanation of the rating.
