Tuesday & Wednesday, October 29th -30th: Block Period Follow-Up
During the Block Periods on Tuesday, October 29th and Wednesday, October 30th we began class by discussing traits the we value and desire in relationships, we also began a discussion about recognizing the healthy and unhealthy signs in relationships. We then spent the majority of the period completing "In Her Shoes", an activity that walked groups through various unhealthy and abusive dating relationships. After we discussed each of the relationships, students were asked to respond to 2 of the 4 DISCUSSION QUESTIONS. Please make sure responses are thoughtful, and well-thought out. Responses should be at least 4-5 sentences in length. We will discuss these as a full class on Friday.
Reminder! We will have a reading quiz over lessons 15 and 17 from the textbook to start class on Friday. See the last post on teacherweb for a link to the reading.
