RELATED LEARNING AND EVALUATION SITUATIONS
Media and Sexuality
To help students to reflect on different ways of exercising freedom, the influence of media on personal freedom of choice and the resulting implications on individuals and groups. To help students become aware of the values that underlie media messages of sexuality, and the influence of media on social norms.
Peer Pressure and Sexting
This LES will springboard from three Public Service Announcements highlighting the potential risks of posting images online. Students will discuss social networking groups that they subscribe to. Dialogue will focus on the pros and cons of belonging and then edge into their understanding of disclaimers and terms of agreement. A brief look into the practice of sexting will follow. [...] The students will develop an Awareness Campaign for their peers endorsing their personal viewpoint of social networking, peer pressure and today’s youth. Draft version available: Download
