Week 6 Lesson - 05/04/11: Sexuality
Today our personal development and health lesson was concerned with the growth and development strand, and focused on the subject matter of sexuality. We learnt that sexuality can be a difficult topic of discussion, and we need to be careful about the way it is discussed in the classroom. Two areas of concern are culture and religion. Some cultures and religions do not allow, or are not comfortable discussing sexuality, and the teacher must acknowledge this. The class was split into groups, with some students given questions about sexuality to answer, and other groups having to create lesson plans involving the topic. An interesting aspect of the lesson was thinking about tricky questions that children might ask about sexuality.
