Summaries and Reviews
Summary
Describes alternative learning oportunities for high school students, both at home and abroad, and discusses ways to locate them, preparation required, and cost. (view table of contents)
Amazon.com description: Product Description:
For some teens, the traditional four-year high school curriculum is just what they need. Others would benefit more from nontraditional learning experiences—if they knew how to find them and what to do next. This practical, inspiring book explores the world of alternative learning, giving teens the knowledge and tools they need to make good choices. It’s not a directory of programs; there are many of those available already. Instead, Rebecca Greene introduces and describes a world of possibilities, from study abroad to internships, apprenticeships, networking, job shadowing, service learning, university coursework, and independent study. Then she tells teens where to look for opportunities, how to decide which ones are right for them, how to overcome potential barriers (cost, distance, time), how to prepare, and what kinds of benefits they can expect to take away from their experiences. Comprehensive and realistic, complete with first-person stories from high school students who have gone “outside the box,” this guide is for any teen who wonders “What’s out there for me?” Also recommended for school guidance and career centers.
