Sexuality Education: A Curriculum for Parent/Child Programs.
Brown, Jean; And Others
This document is the fourth volume of a six-volume report on sexuality education. The curriculum described here is a revised and expanded version of the curriculum "Parent-Child Sex Education: A Training Module" (Brown, et al., 1978) and is based primarily on the experiences and evaluation of the Family Guidance Center's (FGC) work in St. Joseph, Missouri. The curriculum is designed for educators interested in replicating the FGC model. An introduction highlights important features of using the curriculum by describing the FGC approach to family sexuality education, the organization of the curriculum, important considerations for selecting the style of the course, and practical suggestions for implementing and evaluating courses using the curriculum. Suggested course outlines are provided for mothers/daughters aged 9-12, fathers/sons aged 9-12, mothers/adolescent daughters, and fathers/adolescent sons. The curriculum includes several units: (1) Introduction to Course; (2) Anatomy, Physiology, and Maturation; (3) Gender Roles; (4) Sexually Transmitted Diseases; (4) Reproduction; (5) Adolescent Sexuality; (6) Birth Control; (7) Parenting; and (8) Review. Each unit contains several activities, and, where appropriate, lecture notes and handouts. Lists of resources and a set of knowledge, attitude, and course evaluation questionnaires are appended. (NB)
