3-week series on who you are and what you


Dating 101. So, teenagers are going to date. As much as we would recommend them not to, or wait till their older, they're going to date. So, lets talk about it. Let talk about how the person we date shouldn't define who we are. Lets also talk about standards, and how to not compromise in who we are to date. We're also going to talk about how we should break up without hurting each others self-esteem.

I've pulled from a variety of resources in this series, one of them being, Haley DiMarco's book The Dirt on Dating and How to Break Up Well. Your students are going to "love you" for talking about this important topic in teenage culture. Want to draw a crowd and catch the attention of your students? Try this one.
