Sex Ed for Caring Schools: Creating an Ethics-Based Curriculum
Lamb, Sharon
Teachers College Press
While arguments for and against teaching abstinence, the use of contraceptives, and sexual identity are becoming more and more polarized, most people agree that students must learn to navigate an increasingly sexual world. "Sex Ed for Caring Schools" presents a curriculum that goes beyond the typical health education most students receive today. As part of a critical pedagogy movement that connects education to social justice enterprises, this book and the corresponding online curriculum encourage students to talk, write, and think about the moral and relational issues underlying sex in society today. Addressing the real concerns of today's teens, this book includes lessons on pornography, prostitution, media objectification, religion, and stereotypes. Book Features include: (1) Introduces readers to the controversies that have surrounded sex education curricula in recent decades; (2) Outlines a comprehensive sex education that includes character education, citizenship, and caring--the three Cs; (3) Focuses on the education both girls and boys need to treat each other ethically; (4) Includes discussion questions and activities for future educators; and (5) Corresponds to an interactive online curriculum hosted by the author that includes free readings, activities, and discussion questions.
