TEACHERS & PARENTS: Walter Dean Myers "Second Chance" Initiative

Walter Dean Myers "Second Chance" Initiative

Walter Dean Myers began writing poems and short stories in the fourth grade. For a boy with a severe speech impediment, writing became a wonderful form of self-expression. Drawing from his own experiences growing up in Harlem, Myers often writes about the challenging realities that face today's urban youth.

The award-winning Myers has a new book coming out in February called Dope Sick. His goal in writing this tale of second chances, redemption, and the promise of hope was to reach teens that need to change direction. With his publisher HarperCollins, he's made the first three chapters of Dope Sick available to download at The entire book will be available online for free reading for 2 weeks beginning on its February 10 publication date. has also pulled together resources for adults to help them get discussions going about the choices young people make and will provide online opportunities for students to interact with Myers.
