In this diverse book of suggestions, tips, and words of wisdom, students share their knowledge on the topics they care about most. Want to know about love? Apps? A young man's perspective on makeup? What it takes to be good at your sport? The students of Glenbard East High School have it covered. The student authors of So You Wanna Know... tackle the angst and uncertainty of high school with humorous, heartfelt tales that reflect their own individual experiences.
USING THIS PUBLICATION IN THE CLASSROOM
We encourage you to use So You Wanna Know… to spark discussions among students who are new to your school, or about topical issues within your classroom. Use this text to generate ideas for cultivating community within your school, such as launching a school webpage of student resources or creating a class blog.
When students take on the role of experts and share their ideas in the public domain, they can experience a powerful sense of community and ownership over their choices. We believe all students have expertise to share, particularly when it comes to their lived experiences, and they can be valuable resources to one another as they navigate the difficulties of high school.
