#8650 In this two-part DVD series, eight young adults tell the stories of how they are trying to make it on their own. No scripts, no actors, just real life.
In Part 1 your students will meet Anna, Javier, Roger and Amanda. In Part 2 they will meet Kiran, Greg, Marlenne and Ryan.
The lessons to be learned from these stories are too numerous to list. In some cases, they illustrate the perils and heartache of foolish decisions and just plain bad luck. In others, they illustrate what good judgment, hard work and determination can accomplish.
But in each case, they offer lessons that everyone should learn and relate to.
