Building on the Introduction to Healthy Relationships lesson by the same authors, this lesson expands students’ understanding of healthy relationships. Students will review what healthy relationships look and feel like. Students will focus on how to assess the health of their own romantic and platonic relationships. The lesson also expands on power dynamics, boundaries, and consent as appropriate for older high school students. After an in-depth, discussion-based presentation reviewing these concepts, students will apply an evaluation process to review the health of fictional relationships in small groups.
In this lesson, students will learn about and practice the fundamentals of healthy communication and boundary-setting in order to strengthen healthy relationship skills. Students will identify characteristics of healthy & unhealthy relationships.
