(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.
A teacher in California is explaining the concept of consent to her third-graders with a simple chart
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!"
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."
Kleinrock, who has a background in social and emotional learning, also had her students explain the importance of consent in a writing assignment.
"Asking for consent is important because if you don't they might not trust you the next time you ask," one of her students wrote.
