Teaching Sexual Health

Teaching Sexual Health is an innovative website developed by Alberta educators and health professionals. The website offers up-to-date, evidence-based information and strategies for teachers and educators in four main areas: Lesson Plans, Teaching Tools, Community Agencies, and Resources. It is based on a theoretical framework that incorporates the Resilience, Social Learning, and Comprehensive School Health models. Throughout, there are notations that help teachers address the various spiritual, cultural and gender issues of students. In addition, the website offers lesson plans for students of differing abilities (special needs). Learning opportunities allow teachers and educators to learn about best practice, methods, and Alberta Education outcomes.

Teachers also have access to online educators in sexual health who will assist them with curriculum and student classroom questions. The Teaching Tools section provides information and strategies to help teachers prepare for sexual health education. The website includes provincial community agency resources, illustrations, statistics, PowerPoint® slides, updates and links to other relevant websites.
