Collaborative Debating by Margaret Hepworth

 
Imagine an Affirmative team being met with a Cooperative team; a Mindful Coordinator chairing the debate; and a Mentor who didn't judge, score or rate, yet instead metered out a series of guidances. Now you have a Collaborative Debate – a debate that may actually get us somewhere beyond the argument, towards the solutions that we are seeking. A debate where the skills that young people are learning are not simply for the sake of learning – they are life skills.
If our young people learn this as a tool to use in any aspect of their lives – in arguments with friends, conflict at home, tension in a workplace – can you imagine what this would mean for their futures?   
Start Collaboratively Debating today! This manual includes full instructions on running Collaborative Debates within your classroom.

The Gandhi Experiment: Teaching our teenagers how to become global citizens by Margaret Hepworth

 
How do we take Gandhi’s messages further, as lessons that could bring about change in and around us? Perhaps a healthy dose of non-violent, solution-focused activities stemming from Gandhian principles would be a more productive approach both at school and at home, especially for the citizens of tomorrow.

How do we teach our youngsters non-violence is a conscious choice; that we need to rise against injustices; that ‘hope in action’ and ‘moving from apathy to action’ are of supreme importance; and that ‘satyagraha’ is the very foundation we stand on?

This book literally equips teachers and parents with tools and strategies for peace-building. For teachers, it takes these into the rigorous academic classroom; for parents, it is a guide to how they can build better relationships with their children whilst helping them step forward into a better world. The Gandhi Experiment teaches teenagers global citizenship, conflict resolution, anger management, forgiveness and how to mould their thoughts for a more positive future.

Using thirty-plus years of experience, Margaret Hepworth combines concepts, techniques and practices, creating activities that engage, provide equity and enable teenagers to make powerful and positive choices for a better tomorrow.

Witchtown by Cory Putman Oakes

 
Enter the gates of Witchtown to find a mischievous coming-of-age story for fans of Alice Hoffman's Practical Magic and the Danielle Paige’s Dorothy Must Die series.

When sixteen-year-old Macie O’Sullivan and her masterfully manipulative mother Aubra arrive at the gates of Witchtown—the most famous and mysterious witch-only haven in the world—they have one goal in mind: to rob it for all it’s worth. 
But that plan derails when Macie and Aubra start to dig deeper into Witchtown’s history and uncover that there is more to the quirky haven than meets the eye. Exploring the haven by herself, Macie finds that secrets are worth more than money in Witchtown. Secrets have their own power.
