New Curriculum for Middle School Students - AXE Generation Unlabeled is Here!

We are thrilled to announce that Generation Unlabeled is here! Generation Unlabeled is a new curriculum comprised of five, no cost, interactive lessons that cover a range of topics – from toxic masculinity and gender stereotypes to inclusivity. The program asks middle school students to analyze today’s society and culture, themselves, and conclude with a call to action, like revising a school policy to be more inclusive.

We developed the curriculum with support from a group of national experts and we piloted the curriculum with over 800 middle school students across the country!

Generation Unlabeled is a collaboration between Cairn Guidance and AXE, with generous funding provided by AXE.

Each lesson is intended to be implemented in about 55 minutes and contains:

  • Educator’s Guide

  • Presentation

  • Activities and Handouts

Some of the Objectives of the five lessons are to:

  • Introduce students to terms and definitions related to gender, and identify ways in which gender expectations may be harmful.

  • Examine how internal and external influences contribute to gender expectations.

  • Explore the personal impact gender expectations have on students and their peers.

  • Examine how fears related to differences and/or gender expectations may impede communication and relationships.

  • Promote the importance of building relationships based on respect for others despite differences including gender.
