Cross-Curricular Sex Education (CCSE): Project Pack for Schools and Health Authorities. Volume 2: Teaching Materials.
Exeter Univ. (England). School of Education. HEA Schools Health Education Unit.
This document contains information designed for sex education in secondary schools. The materials here are for classroom use, and share a number of features: (1) they consist of "modules" of various lengths to fit within subject areas; (2) they place no special demands on the skill of the teacher; and (3) they all contain a component for feedback, to be completed by the teacher or the class member. The materials inform young people about the medical ramifications and other consequences of sexual behavior and encourage young people to find time for reflection. It is also hoped that this guide will provide educators effective strategies for coping with the demands of health and social education during a period of curriculum changes. The project incorporates "cross-curricular modules" to allow discussions of sexuality and relationships in various subject areas. The modules provide information and opportunities to explore a variety of topics. The book aims to make students aware of sexual stereotypes and encourages them to challenge these stereotypes. It encourages students' awareness of the long-term consequences of stereotypical images of women as sexual objects and it enables students to understand, through historical or other research, how stereotypical images may have originated.
