Middle School Course

Welcome to Good Friend, Inc.'s Middle School Course! This Course includes everything a teacher, social worker, school counselor, or other child service provider needs to facilitate a Good Friend autism awareness, acceptance, and empathy building service with 6th - 8th grade learners. (Because one of the students in the film refers indirectly to suicidal ideation from 17:54-18:49, some content might not be suitable for children under age 12.) Course Content includes an introductory instructional video, downloadable PDFs of materials (including a film discussion guide), and the 20-minute long Choosing to Be a Good Friend video in English. Note that you need to mark lessons complete (click where indicated in top bar of the lesson) in order to unlock the next lesson.

Following the delivery of this course, check and lock in learnings by launching our interactive Kahoot! game for students in grades 6-8 (see Exercises). Your feedback through our Follow-Up Survey is crucial to track the impact of this curriculum. Once you've completed the Follow-Up Survey and marked that lesson complete, you will receive your Completion package.
