Kid-to-Kid: A Facilitator’s Guide to Empowering Students through Open Discussion


By Marcia Rogat

Kid-to-Kid offers teachers, counselors, and advisors an opportunity to guide young adolescents toward personal empowerment through dynamic and meaningful group discussions. Over a dozen important teen topics are addressed, including sections on peer pressure, sexuality, friendship, and diversity. Each topic contains specific, easy-to-use questions that gently lead students toward fresh insight and increased awareness as they participate in both speaking and listening with an open heart.

Marcia Rogat provides clear directions, backed by years of personal experience, to help facilitators establish respectful discussions that promote empathy, generate self-confidence, and build understanding between teachers and students.

Effective across all disciplines and ability levels, this inspirational guidebook allows educators to honor the voice of every student, validate each child’s personal strengths, and celebrate the growing integrity of our youth.
