Grade 4-8-A useful and inspirational update to the 1991 edition of the same title. Students often feel the need to better their world, but may be overwhelmed when they begin their campaigns. With this simple-to-follow guide, young people, teachers, and parents can plan their course of social action and expect to see results. Earlier entries have been updated to see what has been accomplished by motivated students since the first edition was published. Projects range from instigating cleanup of toxic waste to youth-rights campaigns. New material includes Internet searching, an expanded section on lobbying, and in-depth judicial information. A section of reproducible pages including proclamations, survey forms, and a grant application checklist further guide the efforts of young activists. This is a definite purchase for all collections, including those that have the earlier version. Be sure to share this dynamic title with your teachers and homeschoolers.
