1. sound and practical suggestions based on extensive experience
2. solid research base
3. a non-prescriptive approach that allows the people on the front lines to be interacting with their location and target audience - whether the administration, the parents or the kids themselves - in the most authentic way possible based on what is actually happening, rather than feeling like the suggestions don't fit the reality of the circumstances in which they are working.
a thorough, well-written and well researched guide written with heart and discernment. Well worth the read for anyone working in this field, and I look forward to future guides written in the same spirit by these authors.
