Carlos embarrasses Marissa by asking her for a date in front of her friends, so she turns him down. What could Carlos have done differently? Comics depicting realistic scenarios help students develop conversation, empathy, friendship, and group skills, and follow-up questions encourage teens to apply these lessons to situations encountered in their own lives. Each situation includes a "Wrong Way" and "Right Way" scenario to show teenagers what body language and social cues to look out for. Reproducible pages can also be printed from an accompanying CD-ROM. 8½" x 11". Grades 7–12.
