Education for Sexuality; Concepts and Programs for Teaching. Second Edition.
Burt, John J.; Meeks, Linda Brower
This book on human sexuality is a testbook which was conceived, written, and designed by teachers for teachers. It is divided into four sections, the first three of which are designed to acquaint the teacher or future teacher with basic information and concepts related to sexuality. Section 1 serves as an introduction to sex education and discusses sex education as education for love. Section 2 deals with the biological aspects of human sexuality and includes chapters which discuss the male, the female, human sexual response, pregnancy, childbirth, lactation, contraception, abortion, and venereal diseases. In section 3, the philosophical, psychological, and social aspects of human sexuality are explored through chapters dealing with the intelligent choice of a sexual life style, masturbation, homosexuality, and population stabilization. In section 4, the scope and sequence of the sex education curriculum for elementary, junior, and senior high school are presented. The curriculum includes detailed teaching units for the various grade levels, together with the most recent list of supplementary materials. An appendix is attached which includes an atlas of teaching illustrations (especially designed for easy reproduction on transparencies for use with the overhead projector), a glossary of terms, and additional readings.
