Teens Explore Relationship Questions

I had the great opportunity to teach the sophomore health unit at Madison High School on the topic of relationship preparedness. Using the Things to Know Before You Say “Go” cards and games from the Activity Book, the students explored many important aspects of partnership selection.

Studying the questions.


They examined the stages of relationship development and became familiar with the breadth of essential questions.

Discussing the stages of relationship with Dr. Martindale.

Categorizing the different stages of relationships and dating.

The students identified the personal values and strengths they bring to relationships.

Exploring dating and relationships with the Things to Know Before you Say "Go" card deck.

I enjoyed watching them be playfully engaged in this powerful topic. Each student went home with several of their own question cards they created in class, perhaps these can serve as a jumping-off point for discussion in future relationships.
