Published on

Adolescents live in the wild; a place that is set apart from the rest of the world. It is this unpredictable, often inhospitable land we must enter and explore if we are to make a positive difference in the lives of adolescents.

Practice C.P.R. to join with teens:
1. CRYSTALLIZE your message
— Sharpen your focus to the essentials

2. PERSONALIZE your teaching methods

— Increase relevance and meaning for teens as they take ownership

3. RELATIONALIZE your approach and build trust with students

— See teens connect with your message as they connect with the messenger….
