Power Up Speak Out!
A five lesson toolkit for teaching students what TO DO, instead of what NOT to do.
In this lesson, students will define a relationship as a connection between two or more people, and identify healthy relationship statements.
Power in Relationships
In this lesson, students will examine the concept of one-sided power and two-sided power in peer relationships, and identify Red Flags.
Boundaries in Relationships
In this lesson, students will identify that personal boundaries are self-created, can change and need to be respected, use the Red Flags to examine when personal boundaries are not respected, and identify “put downs” as an example of disrespecting personal boundaries.
Consent in Relationships
Students will define consent as permission to cross a boundary, identify forms of consent, identify “got consent?” statements, and examine the lack of consent by applying the Red Flags and Boundaries.
Healthy Relationships in Action
Students will identify conditions that make it easy or difficult for people to be themselves, be treated well, be able to say no, and have fun in their relationships, and identify how they can use their power so that everyone can be themselves in their peer and dating relationships.
