Lesson Descriptions 

Understanding Sexuality and Values 

Understanding Sexuality and Values lessons introduce sexuality as a broad and lifelong concept. Through engaging activities and peer-to-peer dialogue students will explore the different aspects of sexuality - identity, sensuality, intimacy, sexual health and reproduction, sexualization - and how their values impact the way they think about and relate to these aspects. We recommend beginning with this lesson if you plan to offer a series of lessons to your youth. 

Anatomy and Physiology

Anatomy and Physiology lessons introduce human reproductive systems using age-appropriate, medically accurate terms. Students will learn the names and functions of all body parts included in assigned-male, assigned-female, and intersex bodies.  

Puberty 

Students will learn that puberty is a time when bodies experience many physical and emotional changes. Bodies change from being child-like to becoming an adult, and these changes happen in stages that a person can predict and prepare for.  This session will review these changes and discuss how someone can adjust to and prepare for these changes.  

Consent

Consent lessons focus on exploring boundaries and developing strong communication skills. Through engaging activities and peer-to-peer dialogue, students will learn what consent is, why consent is important, and how to navigate consent with increasing nuance through the lifespan. 

Healthy Relationships

Healthy Relationships lessons focus on developing healthy peer and romantic relationships. Through engaging activities and peer-to-peer dialogue students will learn how to identify healthy, unhealthy, and abusive behaviors, and support those in their lives in unhealthy or abusive relationships. 

Gender Identity and Sexuality

Gender Identity and Sexuality lessons introduce and explore the concepts of gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and sex assigned at birth and how these concepts contribute to one’s sense of identity. Through engaging activities and peer-to-peer dialogue students will learn terms and definitions and explore their own sense of identity.  

Birth Control and Sexual Protection

Birth Control and Sexual Protection (BC/SP) lessons introduce students to the most common and accessible BC/SP methods. Through engaging activities and peer-to-peer dialogue students will learn how each method works, where to find reliable information for further learning, and how to access the methods in their community.  

Sexually Transmitted Infections

Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) lessons introduce students to the most common sexually transmitted infections. Through engaging activities and peer-to-peer dialogue students will learn how STIs are transmitted and how to use abstinence and/or barrier methods to prevent transmission. 

Sexual Decision Making

Sexual Decision Making lessons introduce students to what the decision-making process is and what the process for making any kind of decision could look like. Through engaging activities and peer-to-peer dialogue students will understand why it’s important for people to think carefully when making the decision to be sexually active, and what some of the specific questions a person might want to ask/answer before making the decision to be sexually active.  

Reproductive Rights 

Reproductive Rights lessons introduce students to the social context of abortion, including current prevalence, reasons a person might decide to have an abortion, and abortion safety. Through engaging activities and peer-to-peer dialogue students will understand the current laws and how common abortion is, even when it isn’t legal.
