Friendship is the relationship between people who enjoy being together and who care about each other.
•Live near each other
•Meet through other friends
•Take part in activities that you enjoy doing
Simplified and standardized conception or image invested with special meaning and held in common by members of a group.
At your table (marker and paper), select a leader based on most intelligent person.
•Are labels harmless or not?
•Where do you cross the line?
•Does it depend on who says it? Or how they are saying it?
•Does it depend on whether or not they know the person it is being directed too?
•Does it depend on whether they belong to the group they are making the stereotype about?
•Did you make a stereotype picking the most intelligent person?
How can we combat stereotypes in our lives and in society as whole?
It is important to not stereotype people when making friends. A close friend might be someone who is just like you or the complete opposite.
Some people think that a good friend will always agree with you, no matter what you say or do. Do you think this is true? Think of examples when a friend would be showing their friendship to you by disagreeing with you.
If you answered “YES” to the questions above, then it is most likely that this person will be a good friend.
You just met a new person who seems interested in being your friend and is nice. However, this person is constantly trying to change you. They also don’t respect other people’s values. Is this person a good candidate for a friend? Why or why not?
When someone challenges your beliefs- stand your GROUND and RESIST.
If you answered “YES” to any of these questions, talk to your parents and use refusal skills to get away from this person.
Refusal skills help you stay in safe relationships and resist negative peer pressure.
These let people know, YOU mean what YOU say (show with words and actions)
Create a concept map using refusal skills for the following scenario: “Friends want to vandalize a neighbor’s mailbox.”
A clique is a group of friends who hang out together and act in similar ways.
Cliques can be harmful if they encourage bad behavior, and discourage members from making their own decisions.
If you are in a BAD clique:
Some peer pressure may be positive and inspire you to do something worthwhile, with good character
Example: If a friend picks on someone, tell them that teasing is wrong. Being honest takes courage; BUT HONESTY is one of the most important parts of friendship.
Exit Slip- Create a table with TWO columns: one for negative peer pressure and one for positive peer pressure. List at least five influences in each appropriate column.
Friends usually have things in common, but remember you are STILL individual people with goals and ideas.
Is communication important?
What does it mean to be someone’s best friend? What is the difference between a best friend, casual friend, and acquaintance?
Find someone you do not talk to or know well. Find three things you have in common and three things that you are different about. Present to class.
Exit Slip- Write about how leadership and cooperation can affect the following people: firefighters, doctors and nurses, architects, carpenters, plumbers, electricians.
and all other public forms of communication.
Media is all around us. We are exposed to 3,000 advertising images daily. Many companies use sexuality to market their product. Overwhelming number advertisement companies use sexuality subconsciously to encourage premature sexuality among teens. If you are made aware of the influence of media in your lives, it is the first step to prevent the media’s powerful influence.
Group boys together, group girls together. In groups form questions they would like to ask the opposite gender about dating.
Is it appropriate for a girl to ask a boy out on a date? Explain reasons.
• Video rental
• Computer games
• Table tennis
• Pizza party
• Board games
• Youth center
• Amusement park
• Spectator sports
• Mini golf
• In-line skating
Draw a Venn Diagram, comparing and contrasting: Group and Individual Dating (need at least 3 examples in each section).
Discussion: List non-physical ways to show affection. How is affection related to respect? Can you have affection without respect? (You are not showing affection if you are disrespectful)
Brainstorm a list of “nice things” to do for one another that show affection without engaging in sexual activity.
When showing affection, make sure your message is clear, understood, and respectful.
Create a list of (5) ways to demonstrate affection. Give reasons of how it demonstrates affection for each one.
Plan ahead- Going to a party- find out who will be there, adults supervising.
These limits will help protect you from getting hurt and avoiding sexual activity.
Parents set limits because they love their children and want them to be safe.
Create a list at your table, for questions to ask before teens go on a date.
Make a list of adults you could talk too about setting limits in dating relationships.
A way to show affection respectfully is choosing sexual abstinence. Abstinence is refusing to take part in an activity that puts your health or the health of others at risk.
All of three will help you maintain self-control.
You and your table will come up with lines to persuade someone into certain sexual behaviors: kissing, touching, intimate contact. You will also be coming up with lines to refuse them.
Skit: Write out a skit at your table using the award winning lines. Be creative, yet realistic. You can use one line or multiple lines.
This activity helps you recognize lines. Practicing refusal helps it become easier to roll off the tongue when needed.
Contraception is the deliberate prevention of conception or impregnation by any of various drugs, techniques, or devices; birth control.
Present your method to the class and advertisement
Vote on the best advertisement and the healthiest to use.
Conversations about birth control should take place “before the heat of the moment”
The only way to protect yourself 100% is ABSTINENCE- other birth control methods only work 99% of the time, do you want to be the 1%?
Tell me about a method that works against unplanned pregnancy 100% of the time.
Consequences are outcomes or effects that may occur as a result of a decision or an action.
Sexuality activity among teens is likely to have several consequences (some with serious and long-lasting impacts on their lives):
Hypothesize buying diapers for one year. How many times does a baby need to be changed during the first year? Estimate for first 32 weeks, and last 20 weeks. One pack of disposable diapers is=___ . You would need___ packages. Buying diapers for the whole year would be____.
Sexually transmitted infections (STI’s)- Sexually active teens fail to protect themselves from STIs. STIs can lead to lifelong health problems (HIV/Aids), increase the risk of cancers, pose serious health risks to future children, and even death.
Explanation: Most sexually transmitted infections occur in teens and young people up to about age 25. Although it sometimes difficult to avoid catching the common cold and flu, there is an easy way to avoid catching sexually transmitted infections. Abstinence.
Emotional distress- The stress of lying and guilt of the behavior is painful. Teens might regret behavior that doesn’t bring love, respect, or acceptance
Peace of mind- Abstinence is the ONLY 100% effective birth control method, and it provides 100% protection against STIs.
Use refusal skills. Say “NO” with your words, actions, and body language.
You have enough responsibilities at school, home, and with friends.
Sexual activity does NOT prove that you are grown and independent.
You are showing more independence by choosing abstinence by protecting your health and future.
Make a contract with yourself in which you use goal setting for yourself to remain abstinent.
1.State your goal
2.List steps to help you reach your goal
3.Get help and support from others ( Name people)
4.Set up checkpoints to make sure you are staying on target
