Social Health: Healthy Relationships

Social Health: Healthy Relationships

This resource is an entire curriculum about healthy relationships, which are based on respect. It draws on the National Health Standards and is a well laid out course for middle school students. This 45 page document includes well designed tasks for students to understand, question and analyze relationships. Questionnaires, quizzes, motivational stories, analyses, rubrics and recipes for healthy relationships are offered. Self-esteem, trust, respect, communication, sharing, negotiation and compromise, and safety are central themes of this important curriculum.


Digital Manipulation of Body Types

Digital Manipulation of Body Types

This resource contains some excellent links highlighting image manipulation and the distortion of beauty in the media. The first link, a video by Dove, shows the process by which a very plain looking woman is transformed into a billboard beauty. The second link highlights the retouching accomplishments of a studio (click "portfolio" from the main site). Another link from Dartmouth University gives a history of manipulated photographs. All of the above will foster important discussion among adolescents.
