Suicide is a real issue in many teens' lives. Help your upper graders cope, help, and help their friends when thoughts of suicide arise. They discuss the topic as a class, complete a worksheet, and learn what to do if someone they (or they themselves) feel suicidal. This is a highly sensitive topic and may require parental consent prior to teaching. This lesson also puts a lot of emphasis in peers helping peers. The best help is professional help.
This discussion based lesson focuses on the sensitive topic of suicide attacks or bombings used throughout history during times of militaristic upheaval. Learners read news stories, compose journal entries, and engage in a class discussion to better understand the topic. This would be an appropriate lesson when discussing the events of 9/11 or current bombings in the Middle East.
Eighth graders research suicide and depression in teens. They are given an essential research question then create focus questions of their own before conducting their research. Using the Internet, they find answers to their questions and share their information with the rest of the class.
