Sexuality Education Curricula: The Consumer's Guide.
Ogletree, Roberta J.; And Others
This guide provides information about 26 school-based sexuality education curricula. Sexuality educators, curriculum planners, administrators, and classroom teachers can use the material to: (1) quickly determine what is published in the area of school-based sexuality curricula; (2) identify specific attributes of sexuality curricula; (3) build a list of ideal curriculum attributes, based on community needs and concerns; (4) gain insight from evaluations, compiled by sexuality educators, curriculum specialists, and teachers; and (5) use blank charts and worksheets to evaluate and/or enhance curricula. The guide presents developmentally appropriate curricula covering: childhood, ages 5-8; preadolescence, ages 9-12; early adolescence ages 12-15; adolescence, ages 15-18; and special education students. Each curriculum description lists author, year published, latest revision, target grade level, package contents, and where to order. Charts identify content, underlying philosophies, and skill-building and teaching strategies. Each curriculum is evaluated using key criteria, including comprehensiveness, content, accuracy and currency, skill-building, teaching methods, and ease of implementation. Two appendixes provide evaluation matrixes and worksheet, and a list of programs not included in the guide. (Contains 21 references.) (LL)
