If These Chains Could Talk is real and relevant to the students served by the STRIVE program, an intensive reading course for high school students. The stories are thought provoking and allow students to peek into the world of students who have made bad decisions in life.

The STRIVE motto is, “Think, Create, Share,” and after reading Mrs. Burney’s book, students created multimedia projects to share the issues with their peers. Students in other classes observed the presentations and the excitement spread throughout the schools. Teachers from other classes started to request copies of If These Chains Could Talk for their classrooms.

Simply put, If These Chains Could Talk is engaging and motivating. This book is a “must have” for any secondary teacher.
