about

 “Literacy is freedom and everyone has something significant to say.”
–Jimmy Santiago Baca

Fusing Jimmy Santiago Baca’s talents as a writer of memoir with ReLeah Cossett Lent’s expertise in building and empowering classroom communities, Adolescents on the Edge offers a completely new approach to reaching at-risk adolescents. Centered around conflicts and life-altering choices, Baca’s gripping personal narratives–delivered through short stories and live-from-the-classroom videos–will resonate with students and provide rich opportunities for them to reflect on their own decision making. Through these stories and their accompanying activities, students witness the power of literacy and learn that their power, too, lives in the words they speak, write, and share with others.
