2011 Best Curriculum, Life Skills & Character Education, Association of Educational Publishers
Step-by-step activities that help teens engage the themes of the stories in Real Men through multiple learning styles. They show young men that it’s possible to make changes in their lives without betraying who they are, and give them a chance to explore new roles and perspectives in the safe setting of your class or group.
“By being honest about their struggles, and explicit about the things that helped them, these young men show what it takes to change.”
—Geoffrey Canada, CEO, Harlem Children’s Zone, in his foreword to Real Men.
“At a time when we are losing so many young men, a resource like Real Men can literally save lives.”
—Pedro Noguera, Professor, New York University.
