Handling Teamwork and Respect for Others by Tara Welty


Handling Teamwork and Respect for Others by Tara Welty

Teamwork is often the key to success in sports, school, business, and everyday life. If teammates do not respect themselves and one another, they will struggle to achieve their goals. Handling Teamwork and Respect for Others explores teamwork and respect as virtues, discusses contemporary and historic role models of teamwork and respect, and provides practical advice for readers to create successful, respectful teams. History and current events topics covered include: the building of the transcontinental railroad and the Panama Canal; the famous journeys of Daniel Boone and Lewis and Clark with the help of others; how Martin Luther King Jr., Gandhi, Wilma Mankiller, and other civil rights leaders persevered; how professional sports stars work together; and, track star Marion Jones' teammates losing their Olympic medals due to her use of performance-enhancing drugs.


These well-written texts provide substantive advice on handling social issues... The information is well-researched and up-to-date...solid resources. -School Library Journal

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
