Everyone encounters obstacles throughout life. Sometimes it is necessary to overcome fears or physical disabilities. Other times we must overcome challenges that are not of our own making. Fortunately, there are many ways to overcome obstacles. This book illustrates how we often need to rely on the help of others to succeed.

Academic standards correlations on Teachers' Domain use the Achievement Standards Network (ASN) database of state and national standards, provided to NSDL projects courtesy of JES & Co.
We assign reference terms to each statement within a standards document and to each media resource, and correlations are based upon matches of these terms for a given grade band. If a particular standards document of interest to you is not displayed yet, it most likely has not yet been processed by ASN or by Teachers' Domain. We will be adding social studies and arts correlations over the coming year, and also will be increasing the specificity of alignment.
