Shifting Boundaries Grades 6-7:

The Shifting Boundaries curriculum begins with allowing students to identify their own boundaries and recognize the boundaries of their peers through several communication-based activities. Students will then unpack common scenarios to recognize if they are safe/”no big deal” or unsafe/”a big deal” to guide them into a discussion of the difference between sexual violence and flirting. Finally, students will collaborate to list safe and unsafe spaces within their school and identify how to report any unsafe situations to trusted adults.
