Useful Resource Dec 5 2006
By Mouldy Pilgrim - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Spiral-bound
It has been a long time in coming: a book that looks at the more controversial side of life and gets away from the sanitised topics for the prudish teacher and class. It was with great interest that I first picked up this book.

It does get into some pretty good issues, and some that are really on the limits of what you would call "normal". This covers issues like transgenderism, (a personal favourite of mine), age differences, inheritance, death, and a whole range of others. There is pretty much something for everyone, even those with a more conservative bent.

Some of the features are good, but there is one serious lack. That is the presentation. Each lesson is quite simply boring to look at. Compared with other publications in the same vein, (for example, "Ideas and Issues: Advanced"), this book is positively boring to look at. Despite some good features, one will need to spice it up with their own resources. The lack of pictures and creativity in some respects is quite notable. However, they do make it easy to expand on the topics and make your own activities.

It is a good book to form a basis for a lesson, but there is no arriving two minutes before your lesson and copying a few runs from one of these. You will need to add your own "spice" and "flavour" to it.
