Transition Issues

Coping with difficult personal and social issues

Transition Issues provides teachers with a blackline master resource to use with students to demonstrate that, while we all have difficult times, there are strategies which can be used to help us through them. By providing realistic and emotive texts, students are treated to an insight of someone else’s problem. The supportive worksheets allow students ‘to look in from the outside’ and offer their own suggestions for dealing with the problems outlined in the text.
