Overview


With a rise in recent years in the number of students seeking mental health services, an increase in cheating behavior in school, and constant concern from parents, teachers, and especially students about academic achievement, the time is now for a book series to address academic stress.

Based on a highly regarded program sponsored by Stanford University, the SOS: Stressed Out Students books will address a growing an often-overlooked crisis: adolescents struggle with stress, compromising their mental and physical health, personal values, and commitment to learning as they try to cope with growing pressure to achieve. In a survey released last year, 460 parents in California’s Santa Clara and San Mateo counties cited school-related stress among their top concerns for their children. Based upon real-life stories and tips from teachers, students and parents, each book in the SOS series will address a topic of utmost concern to American teenagers.

SOS: Stressed Out Students' Guide to Saying No to Cheating offers a lifeline to students, parents, teachers, and counselors constantly confronted by chances for an easy A. Cheating is everywhere: in online term papers, in text messages during exams, and good old-fashioned over-the-shoulder peeking. As classmates get ahead by taking shortcuts, the SOS guide will explain why students must choose honesty.
