3/23 What Would You Do? - To Prevent Violence and Love Languages
Class Summary - Today, you will watch two sections that I chose and one of your own choosing of the show, 'What Would You Do'. I want you to put yourself in the position of the people who were being filmed by the hidden cameras. What would you say or do if you saw someone treating someone inappropriately. A lot of times, silence is seen as approval, but some times when emotions are involved our words don't come out right. It is a good idea to mentally rehearse what you would do in these types of situations so if you are ever in this position in real life, your words / actions can be more effective.
The third episode is one of your choosing. Pick whichever topic you want and envision yourself in that situation and mentally rehearse what would you do?
The next activity deals with expressing love and concern in a healthy way. Go to www.5lovelanguages.com/profile/teens/ and take the love languages assessment. (Scroll down and click on 'start'). Do not 'x' out of your screen when you are done as you will need the results to do the worksheet below. Read the descriptions or look at the powerpoint slides below for explanations of each love language. Love languages are a way to think about how we feel appreciated. This makes more effective communication as if we know other's love language we can more accurately show them that we care about them and appreciate them in a healthy way. Use the worksheet in the link below under 'homework' to reflect on your love language and to show me you understand what it means. Make a copy of the google doc to make it your own. Save it as STUDENT NAME 3/23 Love Languages Reflection. Complete the worksheet and reshare it back to me for grading.
