The resistant, defiant youth is created from years of experiencing disrespect and failure, making bad choices, and disregarding the feelings and rights of others. By using this book, these defiant young people can be helped to become more emotionally connected with school through the Native American lesson that all things are connected. Using the philosophy that we should strive to keep in a harmonious coexistence with everything in our natural environment, we can help students reconnect to society, to school and to themselves. This book can help you to better reach those kids who may have previously thought of as "unreachable" and help them to become more highly motivated learners in school. It contains Native American quotes, hands-on activities, checklists, and reproducible worksheets that students will enjoy as they learn the valuable lessons. The lessons can be used with individuals, small groups, and/or classrooms.
