Teen DV Month

The 2019 Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month theme is here!

Your Love is Unique ... with Consent a reminder that each relationship has it's individual traits, and everyone deserves to have their boundaries respected! 

It's a national effort carried on by activists, community leaders, and national and local organizations, to raise awareness about dating abuse, promote programs that support young people, and encourage communities to prevent this form of abuse with the goal of decreasing the prevalence of dating abuse among young people. 

Teen DV Month has always been driven by young people, and this year was no different. The activists in Let's Be Real, Break the Cycle's youth movement, wanted a theme that spoke to the importance of the differences in relationships, young love, and boundaries. Members expressed that, your first loves sets you up for the rest of your life, and it's how you learn to define relationships. The members of Let's Be Real want the 2019 Teen Dating Violence Awareness Month theme to remind each and every one of you that your love is unique and you deserve to have your boundaries respected. When we all come together to share our "uniqueness" we can truly learn to work together to create healthy relationships - no matter how young you are!

Shout out to Zachary and Let's Be Real members for their input! Read the full story of how they developed the theme on our blog!

Date/Relationship Violence Event

Date/Relationship Violence Event

Hosted by: West Nassau High School

About:

Students from my HOPE (Health) classes will conglomerate with the Drama and Art classes to advertise this critical issue. HOPE will already be on this unit. Drama students will give dramatic displays of fictitious short plays concerning abuse and domestic violence. Our classes are 1 1/2 hours block scheduling, thus we can accommodate this February remembrance month and deliver. Micah's Place will send a speaker to address the issue first to all our classes. They will offer a time for questions as well as have a panel discussion with the HOPE teacher, art teacher, and drama instructor in small groups. Next, drama students will display their skills incorporating the short plays involving abuse. Students will discuss situations here at school and those outside in the community they are familiar. Art students will draw pictures of the faces of abuse, then display. My students, having covered this automatically, will read articles, view DVDs, and explore the internet of abuse cases, then write 10 main idea/ purpose statements on colored paper. Each strip of paper students will make a chain and these will be displayed throughout the school for us to "Break the Chains" of Abuse. Superintendent, WN principal and asst. principals, dean, school board members, other classes, Directors of Institutions will be attending. The project worked out extremely well previously last year.
