Sean Covey, Dr. Covey's son wrote The 7 Habits for Highly Effective Teens. This book is amazing in how it speaks to young people in a language they accept. I contacted Brian Hamilton, Principal of South Dade Middle School in Florida where they are using this book with their students. In addition to describing the Habits on their web site, a little video shows each habit being introduced by a teacher - very simple and clever. http://sdm.dadeschools.net/
Draper Middle School in New York State has student made video projects on their web site to act out each habit http://www.mohonasen.org/DR/teacher/lgallo/lg7habitshome.htm In this video they demonstrate a variety of ways to proceed with holiday shopping and productive ways to put "Put First Things First"
