This publication is part of the Teenage Health Teaching Modules, a comprehensive health education curriculum for middle and high school students. The six sessions for grades 9 and 10 focus on assessing sexuality-related messages, using values to draw the line in relationships, and exploring the rights and responsibilities of healthy sexuality. The six sessions for grades 11 and 12 focus on essential skills for developing healthy relationships, dealing with challenging situations, and thinking about intimacy in relationships. The module emphasizes abstinence and refusal of unprotected sexual intercourse. It also provides guidance for teachers in developing a comprehensive approach to sexuality education by integrating exemplary curricula on pregnancy prevention, HIV/AIDS, and other sexuality topics.
