Item description for The Junior High Survival Manual by Katrina Cassel...
Overview Lutheran Libraries This short book provides an immediate source of help for adolescents as they begin their middle or junior high school years. This manual offers the reader information with a Christian perspective on how to set goals, make decisions, and develop friendships, followed by discussion questions for each of the twelve chapters. Although designed primarily for individual use, pre-teen youth groups would benefit from studying this book before they enter junior high. In the church library, this book would be a valuable resource for parents to consult and/or read with their sons and daughters as they live out their teen years. In addition, the book will help both generations make the most of the relatively short time a teenager spends in junior high or middle school.

Good for middle school kids Dec 26, 2005
I am in seventh grade and the reason I like this book is because it helps me with school and in dealing with problems
Good for middle school also Mar 12, 2003
Although this book is titled "The Junior High Survival Guide," it is also great for middle school students. The book is divided into three sections -- Study Skills, Friendship Factor and Decide for Yourself. The study skills section covers note taking, test taking, time management and more. The friendship section talks about making and keeping friends. The final section is on not only how to avoid negative peer pressure but how to create positive peer pressure. All of these topics are relevant to middle school students as well as Jr hi however parents may want to read the book with middle school students to make sure they get the most out of it.
Book helped me Aug 9, 2002
I used this book to help me do better in school. I go to a small Christian school and we did each chapter together. Then I reread the book at home. It helped me know how to take notes, study for tests, and make better friends. I think if you are in middle school or junior high school you should read this book. Have a parent read it with you too.
A Must Read for Junior High Students Mar 24, 2001
This book is a must read for any student in junior high or soon to enter junior high. This is a scary time for any teen ager and Ms. Cassel answers a lot of questions about studying, peer pressure and how to deal with all those little problems that crop up unexpectedly in school and life.
