The Effect of Sex Education on Pre-Adolescent Children.
Wilson, Maureen C.
This study compared the differences in student knowledge and attitudes that occur between two instructional approaches to sex education in the fifth and sixth grade. It was hypothesized that students who had experienced a six-lesson, multi-media sex education program (KIT) plus a one-hour doctor and nurse presentation (DANP) would receive higher knowledge and attitude scores than would students receiving only the DANP approach. Upon completion of the two programs, participating students were administered a thirty-two item questionnaire. Analysis revealed that the gains in knowledge of the KIT plus DANP group as compared to the DANP group were significant. No significant difference was found between groups for the attitudinal questions. A copy of the questionnaire is appended to this report. (Author/JD)
