Northeastern Local School District Course of Study and Instructional Guides for Sex Education.
Northeastern Local School District, Springfield, OH.
This course of study was designed to be used by teachers to guide sex education instruction for the 4th through 12th grades. It provides daily lesson plans for teachers to use. The goal of the program is two-fold: (1) to develop an understanding of sexuality, establish a vocabulary of proper terminology, and build a foundation of knowledge on the biological aspects of reproduction; and (2) to develop an understanding of family roles and responsibilities and enlarge students' capacity for making responsible decisions about sexual conduct, parenting, and successful social relationships. Units of instruction are outlined for each grade, with recommendations for class activities and discussions. Test materials are included. The appendix provides an overview of sex education, the planning steps of the committee which developed the program, and a sample parent letter. (JD)
