Helping Teachers, Parents and Youth is our Primary Goaleducation

A 2016 study at Stanford University found that students from middle school to college were "easily duped" and unable to use reason with online information.

Legislation in Washington state, Connecticut, Rhode Island and New Mexico targets this problem. However, the need remains across the country. Students need to learn how to THINK and ANALYZE.

We are confident that AYWN lesson plans teach students to think critically and use numerous resources to determine truth.


Our full collection of lesson plans is available Lesson Plans, but 16 of the newest and best are contained in our new book detailed below.
