Degree in Ninja is written by Ryan Penneau and it is meant to be used as a handbook for success. It is specifically written to the college student, but I think the principles can be applied to all ages. It's good advise to get rid of the 'Zombies' in our lives - the things that suck away our lives and cause us to experience a slow death. It's good advise to see it as your own responsibility to keep learning beyond what is offered in the classroom. This book is full to overflowing with good advise and motivating words.
Another book that offers advise on moving your education outside of the schoolhouse walls is The Teenagers' Guide to School Outside the Box by Rebecca Greene. This book asks the question, "Are the things I'm studying and doing right now preparing me for what I want to do with my life after graduation?" High School fills the teenager's life with education, activities, tests, applications, planning, and so many more things, but do we just move forward without thought as to how this affects our future? This book encourages the reader to look for ways to develop skills and explore opportunities that will apply to their future today.
We have other resources that speak to specific subjects, such as science, math, and history. We have books for preparing for college tests and searching for money for education. We have information on careers and getting that first job. As school gets started again, visit the library for all of the resources you need.
