Teaching Sexual Health in Middle School

Training Description:

Learn how to implement Maine Family Planning's 2022 edition of the Middle School Sexual Health Scope & Sequence. This flexible sexual health resource meets the varying needs of the middle school health educator serving grades 6-8. The scope and sequence tool allows middle school educators to “choose their own adventure” in selecting age-appropriate lessons and activities based on the topics they have identified for their grade 6 - 8 students. The curriculum resource is aligned with Maine and national health education standards and includes lesson plans on these topics: puberty & adolescent sexual development, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation and identity, healthy relationships, interpersonal violence, consent & communication, and sexual health.

During the training, participants will:
  • Understand the content and methods recommended for a middle school sexual health program.
  • Practice how to identify and access specific activities and lesson plans within the Middle School Scope & Sequence that meet the needs of your middle school health classes.
  • Share resources and network with educators teaching middle school health  from around the state.
  • Create a customized scope & sequence plan for delivering sexual health lessons to your middle school students grades 6-8.
  • Leave with digital copies of the Middle School Sexual Health Scope & Sequence curriculum that will provide a foundation for middle school youth to develop into sexually healthy teens.

Who should attend?

Whether you are starting with an empty slate, or coming with your own tools of the trade, join us and fellow educators for this training on how to deliver factual, relevant, age-appropriate sexual health education to youth in grades 6 – 8.
