Arguing: Deal with it word by word
Bullying: Deal with it before push comes to shove
Cliques: Deal with it using what you have inside
Cyberbullying: Deal with it and ctrl alt delete it
Fighting: Deal with it without coming to blows
Gossip: Deal with it before word gets around
Racism: Deal with it before it gets under your skin
Teasing: Deal with it before the joke's on you
Each section includes highlights from the Deal With It books, discussion questions, cross-curricular teaching activities, and additional resources.

The book's strengths are many: firstly, there is a variety of activities to choose from... secondly, the activities span the curriculum; thirdly, they can be adapted to suit a particular group of students; and, finally, they do not build on each other so a teacher has the freedom to select whichever activities are best for the group.

This book is a great resource and guide for the middle school teacher.

"For schools which already have the Deal with It Series, this Resource Guide would be a great addition. For those schools which have not yet had experience with the series, it might be a worthwhile purchase as the topics covered are very relevant in classrooms in today's milieu.

Students need to know how to deal with these issues and this whole series is a good starting point. In fact, a whole program could be built around these books and the Resource Guide."
