From their About Us page:      “Beyond Images is a turn-key curriculum developed by the National Eating Disorder Information Centre (NEDIC) and made possible with the generous support of the Dove Self-Esteem Project. The free online lesson plans for grades 4 through 8 fill a gap in media literacy curricula nationally and include activities that make a positive difference in combating appearance-based bullying and negative stereotypes. The curriculum provides the opportunity to explore key issues in today’s society around body image and self-esteem as well as media messaging, while developing critical thinking skills. The Beyond Images program is a powerful tool in creating authentic learning opportunities for students in the classroom, and fits nicely into collaborative inquiry opportunities in junior and intermediate classrooms. NEDIC has partnered with Director’s Cut to provide ‘in class field trip’ as a culminating task to Beyond Images. The digital media collaboration provides hands-on learning experiences that incorporate immediate feedback and assessment opportunities.”

The curriculum is Canadian,  free but you have to register. Check out Beyond  Images: A self esteem and body-image curriculum.
