Having the ability to refuse or stand out alone when peer pressure is strong is often very difficult, but a person can resist if he/she really wants to. If he/she really want to, it is easy to give in. Remember, everyone has the power to resist, but everyone doesn't sincerely want to.
Students will be able to identify and practice various types of refusal skills.
Teacher and student step-by-step instructions are found below in the "Refusal Skills Lesson Plan" attachment.
Instruct the students to take notes on their study guide and participate in the activities throughout the lesson. There will be no homework for this lesson.
