Youth Revolution is the inspirational story of how a sixteen-year-old high-school student from Johannesburg, Kiara Nirghin, overcame huge health obstacles to win the grand prize at the 2016 International Google Science Fair for her unique and innovative solution to worldwide drought. Having experienced bacterial meningitis, undiagnosed bilharzia and severe weight loss, Kiara was forced to postpone her school career for hospitalisation, with a real chance of losing her hearing, her sight and the use of her limbs.
Youth Revolution not only covers her journey from the hospital bed to the stage as the winner of the science award, but also looks at issues surrounding stagnant youth innovation, while considering the dangers of lacking diversity in STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths). It also includes contributions from prominent women in science and education, among them Malala Yousafzai, VP of Education and University Programs for Google and the recipient of the L’Oréal-UNESCO Award for Women in Science.
Youth Revolution is a deeply human and truly inspirational real-life story that will enthral teenagers and adults alike, and proves that even ‘ordinary’ teenagers can do extraordinary things.

Be the reason your students succeed. .
Do you remember that teacher who literally changed your life? Most likely, it wasn't the teacher who stood in front of the class and lectured every day, filling your little head with information. In fact, you probably can't even remember specifically "what" you learned in the class, only that you had some sort of awakening. As coauthor Tommie Lindsay points out, a great teacher doesn't merely provide knowledge but rather "takes away the barriers to learning.," .
"It Doesn't Take a Genius" will help you become that teacher. Written by two nationally acclaimed educators, this inspirational collection of real-life lessons takes you past the long hours, low pay, and school politics that come to dominate the job and provides a refreshing reminder of why you entered the profession in the first place: to change lives for the better. "It Doesn't Take a Genius" will also help parents identify and break through that seemingly invisible barrier preventing their kids from reaching their highest potential.. .
Tommie Lindsey and Randall McCutcheon have divided their book into five sections, each focusing on a single "truth" they believe will motivate students and forge them into individuals who want to be engaged in their education and the outside world.. .
These five "truths" will aid you in being the model all kids need and deserve--regardless of their background. The authors' ideas, presented in short, easy-to-digest articles, are complemented with first-hand success stories written by former students who defied the odds, including inner-city kids with at-risk backgrounds.. .
Every student has a purpose in this world, and it's one of life'sgreat gifts to help him or her find it. Practical and insightful, "It Doesn't Take a Genius" arms you with realistic strategies to create students who will go out into the world not only smarter but--more important--motivated, confident, and curious.. .
Learn how to become the teacher you always wanted to be and to help your students realize their potential. .
Each and every student is fertile ground for learning, even those who seem bored, distracted, or even bitter. All they need is care and attention. Whether you are a struggling teacher or frustrated parent, "It Doesn't Take a Genius" helps you foster success in even the most apathetic of students.. .
The authors, who hold numerous teaching awards, share their secrets of turning kids from all walks of life into successful students who go on to lead fulfilling, productive lives in adulthood. "It Doesn't Take a Genius" is organized into five universal "truths" behind making great possibilities come true. Accompanying the authors' inspiring ideas are first-hand accounts from their former students describing how they turned their lives around to become successful lawyers, playwrights, professors, and more.. .
Written with affection and sincerity--and featuring cartoons by acclaimed cartoonist Sidney Harris--"It Doesn't Take a Genius" is a refreshing response to detached behavioral theory, dry teaching manuals, and negative media stories concerning teachers and our education system. It provides the tools you need to help students unlock their enormous potential. Best of all, you'll come away with the very real but often forgotten fact that the desire to build students into curious, caring members of society isn't a pipedream. It's a calling.. .
