This program, specifically created for students, uses a series of real-life vignettes to demonstrate various kinds of sexual harassment in the school environment. Examples presented range from indirect forms of harassment (such as unwanted propositions, rumor spreading and name calling) to more blatant kinds like physical blocking or touching. The video firmly states that any physical or verbal behavior which makes one person uncomfortable can be considered sexual harassment. As the video continues, real-life teens describe their experiences with sexual harassment. Viewers will also hear from a Sexual Harassment Officer, who suggests options and resources students can seek out to help them deal with an unwanted situation once it has been identified. After viewing segments from No Excuses, your students will have a chance to discuss the issue for themselves. A Teacher’s Resource Book offers rich opportunities for discussion and in-depth examination of this important subject.
