involved in adolescent sexuality as well as allow teachers to become
more familiar with these issues and more comfortable presenting sex
education materials to their students Participants will be given
practical tools to teach this subject to grade levels 7-11, although
discussion and exercises may be modified for elementary levels as well.

Topics include Anatomy, Understanding adolescent sexual behaviors, Why
teens have sex, Predictors of adolescent sexual activity, Current
trends with teens, Sexual Myths, STI Information & Update, Birth
control and condom information, How to answer difficult questions,
