Guidelines for Developing School Programs in Sex Education.
New Jersey State Dept. of Education, Trenton. Div. of Curriculum and Instruction.
In response to the growing need for sex education in the public schools as well as preparing children to meet the challenges of the complex milieu of our times, the New Jersey State Department of Education made available this informational guide to schools in their state. It is designed to augment existing programs and initiate new efforts in providing sound educational programs designed to include the sexuality dimension in the total educational curriculum--prekindergarten through grade twelve. Five sections are divided as follows: Part 1-Point of View gives a policy statement, philosophy, and program objectives. Part 2-Program Considerations includes character and scope, responsibility, approaches, parent involvement, and teacher requirements. Part 3-Characteristics Relating to Human Sexuality and Part 4-Suggested Curriculum Guidelines are both divided on the basis of prekindergarten; kindergarten, grades 1, 2, 3; grades 4, 5, 6; grades 7, 8, 9; and grades 10, 11, 12. Part 5 deals with Evaluation. Throughout the guide, numerous audiovisual aids, pamphlets, books, and sources of information are suggested to aid the teacher and student in developing knowledge and understanding about human sexuality.
