2007 Best Curriculum for a Specialized Audience, Association of Educational Publishers
In this survival manual, current and former foster teens show how they prepared not only for the practical challenges they’ve faced on the road to independence, but also the emotional ones. Worksheets and exercises will help foster teens plan for their future. Activity pages at the end of each chapter help social workers, independent living instructors, and other leaders use the stories with individuals or in groups.
