The 2-part student workbook for mainstreamed learning and mentally disabled high school students contains 12 units intended to provide supplementary instruction in the Contemporary Parenting Choices Curriculum in the home economics class. This unit, the third in the Relationships part of the workbook, focuses on understanding sexuality with individual lessons on what sexuality is, and includes how both males and females become sexually mature, sexual behavior choices, the influence of peers on teenage sexual behavior, responsibilities of a mature sexual relationship, birth control, and sexually transmitted diseases and infections (syphilis, gonorrhea, and herpes). Each lesson typically provides lesson objectives, definitions of key vocabulary terms, workbook activities, a brief discussion of the topic, and a review activity. The material is intended to be used with the special Teachers Guide and the other components of the Contemporary Parenting Choices Curriculum. (DB)
