Let’s take a moment to reflect on the past and future. Thank you! You are one of the thousands of educators in 40 states and 8 countries who have taught Puberty: The Wonder Years since 2015. By doing so, you have made puberty a more positive experience for young people and their parents. Again… thank you for making this world a better place.
Now, I’d like to tell you about two exciting changes that will impact you:
- Exciting news #1: We launched our new website in October!
- Exciting news #2: We released the new 2021 edition of Puberty: The Wonder Years!
We have a new website, and it’s at the same place. When you go there to log in for your Online Teacher Resources, you will notice some changes. Here is what you need to know:
- Continue to use your old login name and password to access your Online Teacher Resources on our new website. Here are instructions for finding your Online Teacher Resources on the new website.
- You can access your Online Teacher Resources there until June 30, 2022. At that time, the Legacy curriculum (copyright 2015-2017) will not be supported.
- You can keep using the Legacy edition of Puberty: The Wonder Years beyond 6/30/22 if you save your Online Teacher Resources to your own computer.
- Your school can still buy the legacy edition of the Puberty: The Wonder Years curriculum, student workbooks, and videos until we run out. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to get a price quote, check availability, or place an order.

Top 10 Reasons to update to the 2021 edition now:
10. It incorporates feedback from educators across the country to make it better. Y’all know what you like!
9. It is more inclusive in its language, approaches, and student scenarios. If we haven’t learned how important inclusiveness is yet…
8. It includes more family engagement strategies. Try out the new parent presentation slides and social media toolkit to build support.
7. It teaches about consent across three grades. The world is ready for that, right?
6. It applies a trauma-based approach to sex education. Did someone say trauma?
5. It offers Add-On Lessons to teach topics to address state and local needs. Let’s flex those flexibility muscles again.
4. It incorporates streaming videos whenever possible. Who hid my DVD player?
3. It is all digital, making it easy to teach virtually or in-person. There’s that flexibility word again.
2. It’s the easiest way to teach puberty education. Easy button, anyone?
