(CNN)With the recent news about the #MeToo movement and sexual misconduct allegations against Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the term "consent" has become part of the national dialogue.
It also can be confusing. So one California teacher, worried that her students may not understand the concept, created a simple chart to explain it.
Liz Kleinrock, a third-grade teacher at Citizens of the World Charter School in Los Angeles, calls her explainer "All About Consent."
Designed for 8- and 9-year-olds, it outlines when one should ask for consent, how to recognize it and what to do if it's denied. Kleinrock shared the chart on her Instagram feed, where it gathered a lot of attention in recent days.
"Whenever I get frustrated about the state of our country, it inspires me to proactively teach my kids to DO BETTER," she wrote in her post. "Role playing is a great way to reinforce these skills, but they MUST be taught explicitly!"
'Consent is important because...'
Even though Kleinrock first shared her lesson plan two weeks ago, she insists it's something she will continue to teach.
"If you teach anything in isolation, chances are the students will not retain the information," she told CNN. "So I will continue to build on the lesson -- for example, I asked my students to show me their understanding of consent by illustrating comics."
