Although the lessons presented on this site are based on videos that can be purchased, there is so much information included that you can create lessons without the videos. For each topic there is a description of the life skill, discussion questions, student activities, and writing assignments for more in-depth examination. The descriptions are very straightforward, something middle school students certainly appreciate, and the discussion questions don’t pull any punches. These lessons afford an opportunity to have open dialogue about many touchy issues.
