Buyer re: Get totally Real! a journey of life planning for teenagers.
How many lessons are included? Could only portions be used? Is this appropriate for apathetic grade 12 students?

Hello! Get totall Real! is something I use over the course of a school year but absolutely can be used in pieces/portions. I started the project for apathetic seniors actually, however over time, I added some lessons directed at younger students to help them see the value of their education early enough to keep them from doing things like failing classes! So consequently some of the earlier pages might seem a bit 'young' for seniors but are focused on helping them better understand themselves, what adult education is about and how it is connected to future job options. There are even some lessons focused on employability skills, job interviewing, etc.
Let me know if I can help further. I could send you a pdf of just the table of content pages to give you some ideas of what the whole project offers. Thanks for your interest.

This is probably a crazy question, but I am completely new to this sight and fell in love with this program. I will be teaching a Leadership Class to 9th and 10th graders this year, and this looks like something I would love to use. If I purchase the download, do I have full copying privileges for my classroom???
Thanks,
Angela

You have copy privileges for one set, however if you make more copies, I'll never know.
To be honest, making copies and having kids keep them in binders (all the way to end of the year) was a NIGHTMARE. Too many pages...too many lost...binders too big and bulky to carry around, etc which is why I self-published to begin with. Plus kids respect books more than loose sheets or copies.
I can sell you whole books for less, or close to, your copy costs). Especially if you consider binders into expense. Depending on how many books you needed, I can go as low as 12.00$ each on 20 or more, including shipping if you buy through my website instead of Amazon.
At my school, we ask for parent donations since it is something they keep a a tool for later and a keepsake.
Our PTA to covers any who can't get a donation.
I'm sure that's way more info than you wanted.
Thanks for asking,Angela and for your interest. Email me at getreallearning@gmail.com if you want more info.
Have a great summer!
