Human Sexuality-Values & Choices: A Values-Based
Curriculum for 7th and 8th Grades
Developed for use in 7th and 8th grade classrooms, this program aims to reduce
teenage pregnancy by promoting seven core values that support sexual abstinence
and healthy social relationships: equality, self-control, promise-keeping,
responsibility, respect, honesty, and social justice. The curriculum including
15 student lessons and 3 adult-only sessions is distinguished by: 1) an emphasis
on parent-child communication; and 2) the use of a standardized, video-assisted
format. Participants gain mastery through role plays, group discussions, and
behavioral skills exercises. Following a field test in nine schools, program
participants showed a greater understanding of the risks associated with early
sexual involvement, and they expressed increased support for postponing sexual
activity, as compared to a control group of their peers. View
