Lesson Plan

Handling Peer Pressure

Class members participate in a discussion to identify all types of positive and negative peer pressure and brainstorm strategies to not give in to negative peer pressure. Scholars create a T-chart to record their observations. Pupils role-play a variety of scenarios and then answer a series of questions. Individuals write a reflection on a time they experienced peer pressure.
