Included in the novel study are a wide variety of activities with an emphasis on self awareness, self discipline and motivation. The study begins with a simple question, “Who Am I?”. Included are activities and exercises that teach the seven habits that teens and students need to be successful. These habits are: Be proactive, Begin with the end in mind, Put first things first, think win-win, Seek to understand, Then to be understood, synergism, and sharpen the saw. This novel has been as a teaching tool by thousands of schools and is highly successful. The skills that are introduced to the students through this are a major component of the AVID program.
