You can complete the stories in order, or you can select the ones that are most relevant as you go through the school year. The stories are written to allow space for students to ask questions, reflect on the situations presented, and discuss questions with each other. The stories are also flexible in that they can be read as a narrative or as skits with student role-playing in character.
At the end of each story, there is an activity that can be completed either as a whole class or in small groups. Each story can be completed in a single session and can also be revisited throughout the school year when relevant.
