Elementary Packages


Each Elementary Instructional Resource Kit walks teachers through the implementation of a specific lesson. Unlike the content that we have developed for implementation at the middle school and high school levels, this content will be used by you, the teacher, to guide students through essential content during class time. Instructional Resource Kits like this one will provide you with step-by-step instructions and a detailed, orderly method for introducing each topic to your students. Each step includes easy-to-follow visuals, links, and resources.


These lessons will feature demonstrations, hypothetical situations, and various scenarios. Regardless of the material and content within the lesson, students should never be used in any demonstration that requires touching; innuendo, situations, or language that may be construed as sexual in nature; or inappropriate conversation.


Our comprehensive K-12 online program expands beyond the topic of assault and abuse and addresses the following eight themes throughout the program:
















When discussing these topics and involving students, remember to exercise caution, discretion, and sensitivity. Never make any assumptions or generalizations about students’ histories, family situations, or prior knowledge. It is advised to avoid humor when discussing this content in order to not confuse or upset students. At the beginning and end of each lesson, remind students that they are able to privately discuss any concerns, questions, or issues with you (or another trusted adult) and should not discuss specific circumstances or individuals during the class-wide discussions.
