Human rights activists, Marc and Craig Keilburgers' guide to active citizenship equips teens with tangible ways to make a difference in their school or community. Included are a 7-step process to social involvement, organizational tips, fund raising ideas, inspirational quotes, and a summary of social issues where students can take action. There are also excellent examples of how to develop effective communication skills that students will be able to transfer to both their academic studies and personal lives - practical life skills such as using a telephone in a professional manner, how to hold a meeting, writing different types of letters, how to conduct a survey, how to write a petition, and how to speak in public. This guide is a must for every school library, student council, and service learning class. ( )
