One in three adolescents in the U.S. is a victim of physical, sexual, emotional, or verbal abuse in a peer relationship. This mini-unit (called a Qit) is designed to help students identify characteristics of unhealthy relationships and learn strategies for seeking help and support to stay safe. Students will explore unhealthy face-to-face and online behaviors such as codependency and abuse (physical, emotional, and digital), as well as learning the difference between healthy and unhealthy conflict. While this resource could certainly be used to discuss dating, there are no references to romantic relationships. Instead, this resource focuses on unhealthy behaviors in friendships and peer relationships in general, making it appropriate for upper elementary and middle school students.

Notes on the Prezi
A Prezi is a digital slide presentation similar to a PowerPoint, but equipped with much more exciting viewing features such as zooming, turning, and perspective-changing, which students tend to love! To keep things super simple, a web link and password to access your Prezi online are included in the PDF you download with this resource — which means no enormous Prezi file or additional software to download, just a link to click. An Internet connection is required to view the Prezi, but that’s it — so easy! If you’re nervous about using Prezi for the first time, I’ve got you covered with Video Tutorials on how to open, navigate, and present your Prezi. Not tech-savvy? Not a problem! My Prezis are designed to be intuitive and easy to use, even for people who’ve never tried a Prezi before.
Please note that while the Prezi is full of exciting colors, graphics, and rich content, it is non-editable and does not include sound.
PS — Have you seen this Harvard University study which found Prezis to be more engaging, persuasive, and effective than PowerPoint?? Check it out!

Hi! I’m Jen. And I created etiQit, where you'll find a fresh, modern approach to social emotional learning (SEL). My resources are perfect for teachers of specialty subjects (such as counseling and guidance, health, life skills, character education, special education, and speech) as well as general classroom teachers looking for low-prep, easy-to-implement SEL activities. Students will be hooked by the infusion of technology, social media, apps, music, and pop culture in etiQit materials, all of which foster an interactive SEL experience designed to promote the social emotional health and personal safety of young people living in a digital world. Thanks for joining me on a mission to advocate for emotionally healthy students, safer schools, and a better world through SEL!
