Preparing to Teach Sexual Health

But I don't know much about teen sexuality. What do I need to know?

Teachers often feel nervous with the idea of talking to teens about sexuality. Part of this apprehension may stem from a basic lack of knowledge. If this is the case, one of the best ways to increase your comfort level is to consult various resources (for example, www.peelsexualhealth.ca).

How do I prepare to teach sexual health?

When teachers take the time to prepare themselves for the task, they normally find their classes run very smoothly. Four things to keep in mind:

  • Consider your own feelings
  • Familiarise yourself with the topic
  • Be prepared for common questions
  • Practice answering questions
