Crossing the Line is a vital tool for combating teen dating violence and abuse. In a nationwide survey by the Centers for Disease Control, 10% of high school students reported being physically abused by a boyfriend or girlfriend. An effective program to combat teen dating abuse is an essential part of any high school health and guidance curriculum.
This is the story of Megan – a happy, athletic, “A” student who wants desperately to be in a relationship and have a boyfriend. She connects with Matt, who seems at first to be her soul mate. As their relationship evolves, Matt monopolizes more and more of Megan’s time. He isolates her from her friends and activities, abuses her verbally and eventually becomes physically violent.
The program tells Megan’s story in dramatic vignettes that are grounded in the latest research on teen dating abuse. Your students will relate to Megan, Matt and their peers as they bring the causes and consequences of teen dating abuse to life.
