Online Teacher 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 Teacher Training Course is available in smaller courses: The Grade 4 Bundle, Grade 5 Bundle, and Grade 6 Bundle. Educators who teach more than one grade level will also be able to select one or two additional grade-specific courses to complete. 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.

Mike B., Lansing School District

“Puberty: The Wonder Years doesn’t just stick to puberty. The curriculum also includes lessons on topics that I think are necessary, such as bullying and social-emotional components. There’s also a lot of scripting for really good conversation and prompts for the teachers.”

Tim Kordic, Project Advisor for Sexual Health & HIV Prevention, Los Angeles Unified School District
