In the mix lesson plan: Cliques, friendship groups, or boxes

Web based lesson plan which “helps students explore the social ‘boxes’ that they place themselves in or are put in by others, and focus on how they judge one another. The lesson can also serve as a training session for students who wish to be Big Brothers and Sisters to incoming freshmen, or student facilitators of Human Relations groups — two programs that promote a greater sense of community within schools.” Draws on materials provided by PBS’s In the Mix program
