In each of the first four units, there are three lessons (each designed for approximately one class period) with progressive, interrelated content. The fifth unit, Peer Mediation, contains one lesson designed to introduce students to the concept of mediation and what they might expect if they sought mediation at their school.
The curriculum can be presented by (a) teaching the lessons within each unit consecutively or (b) teaching one lesson from each unit to introduce each topic area to students within a group of five lessons.
Each lesson includes suggestions for teacher-led activities, student practice activities, and Powerpoint slides. Lessons are “teacher friendly” and can be expanded or condensed, depending on time available.
