For Middle School – 7th Grade

Creative and engaging, these 8 sessions keep middle-schoolers involved. Videos that open each lesson lead naturally to discussion. In each 45-minute segment, they learn the facts about risks and consequences of teen sex, as well as the benefits of choosing healthy relationships. Step by step, students develop the skills, character, and commitment to delay having sex. Topics include:

  • Developing the Best Relationships.  Students discuss what they look for in a relationship, including what qualities are important for a healthy relationship and how to identify and avoid unhealthy relationships.  Students also learn how to tell the difference between infatuation (a “crush”) and real love.
  • Avoiding STDs and HIV/AIDS. Students are taught medically accurate information about how to avoid the risks of common STDs as well as HIV/AIDs, including how STDs are spread, symptoms, treatment, and potential health implications.
  • Preventing Teen Pregnancy. Students learn about the significant risks of teen pregnancy to the teen parents and to the child.  The benefits and limitations of “safe/safer” sex, along with other contraceptive methods, are discussed, illuminating that sexual delay is the healthiest, best choice for teens.
  • Dealing with Pressure.  Students hear other teens discuss the pressures they face to be sexually active, including alcohol use and abuse, peer pressure, media and social media pressure. A real-life story highlights the dangers of sending, posting, or texting explicit photos (“sexting”) to a teen’s immediate and long-term future.
  • Choosing the Best Path.  After hearing other teens present the case for sexual delay, students are encouraged to consider how choosing to delay sexual activity could positively benefit their health and future goals.
  • Setting Boundaries.  Students learn about the importance of establishing boundaries in relationships that match their personal values and goals.  Students are also taught about preventing sexual violence, including the definition of “consent” and how to get help if they or someone they know is a victim.
  • Speaking Up.  Students learn the importance of speaking up in resisting unwanted sexual pressures, along with identifying and practicing specific techniques to help them say “no.”
  • Being Assertive.  Students discover what it means to “be assertive” and participate in role plays to practice their newly acquired skills.

Each lesson in PATH begins with a video to engage students.  Below is a sample of some of the video clips from PATH.  Please note this is only a portion, not the complete video, of the lesson featured.
