Online Training Course:
So, you’ve been asked to teach sex education. Okay, maybe you were told, not asked. Either way, you will be teaching a topic that you didn’t study in college…awkward! No worries! The Puberty Lady has your back.
This e-learning course will help you feel more comfortable and confident about teaching sex education whether you’re a teacher, school nurse, or community educator. While the course is designed to prepare educators for teaching Puberty: The Wonder Years in grades 4, 5, and/or 6, it is also useful for teaching any sex education lessons in those grades.
By the end of the course, participants will:
- Summarize the content, strategies, and organization of Puberty: The Wonder Years for grades 4, 5, and/or 6.
- Practice skills needed to teach sex education.
- Describe the laws and boundaries that impact teaching sex education.
- Create a plan to strengthen parent and family involvement.
The Puberty: The Wonder Years Online Training Course is available in several options: Grade 4 Master Course, Grade 5 Master Course, or Grade 6 Master Course. Educators who teach more than one grade level will also be able to select one or two additional grade-specific add-on courses: Grade 4 Add-On, Grade 5 Add-On, and/or Grade 6 Add-On. You will be able to work at your own pace, and the course is available to you 24/7. You may complete it in a day or stretch it out to fit your schedule.
