As our year is wrapping up, I found that I really wanted to introduce students to the Dove Self-Esteem Project. So, I decided to make this extra credit for those that are interested. The project for our classroom is divided up into 5 lessons (10 extra credit points per lesson/module, for up to 50 extra credit points), covering Appearance Ideals, Media Messages, Confront Comparisons, Banish Body Talk, and Be The Change. I think it is important for all of us--young or old, male or female--to really address these issues that impact us all.
I invite you at home to join in the challenge and conversation!
