PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

***Sensitive topics including suicide.***

Are your students obsessed with "13 Reasons Why?"

“Thirteen Reasons Why,” a 2007 novel by Jay Asher about teenage mental health & suicide, was adapted into a 13 part series by Netflix. First released on March 31, 2017, the Netflix adaptation of “Thirteen Reasons Why” was immediately popular with teens and young adults. It’s easy to see why—with themes of bullying & cyberbullying, abuse & neglect, sexual assault, cliques & loneliness, mental health, self-injury, and suicide, “Thirteen Reasons Why” provided a voice and a mirror for a very real, very difficult, and often very dark, parts of teenage life that tend to lack substantial rhetoric. From the immediate popularity of this show it’s apparent these topics need discussed more often and more fully by caring, competent adults like teachers and school counselors.

This download includes a double sided trauma informed high school teacher's guide to addressing topics that may come up in class, including...

♥ Why did Hannah kill herself? (The phrase "completed suicide" is emphasized throughout my resources, but this question is meant to mimic phrasing the average HS student may use).

♥ Whose fault was it?

♥ OK, so maybe it wasn't any of their faults, but what about everything she went through?

♥ What about her school counselor? He didn't help her.

♥ What could people have done to save Hannah?

♥ What is consent?

♥ What about all the drugs and alcohol?

♥ What about self-injury?

This download strives to provide resources to initiate and assist with such discussions, and is part of a growing bundle.
