Reconstructing comprehensive sex education curriculum from fifth to tenth grade in California : a focus on body image
Capstone Project (B.A.) Liberal Studies Department
This capstone examines the rationale why comprehensive sex education curriculum from ï¬fth to tenth grade in California needs to be reconstructed. This study discusses and compares the teen pregnancy rate and the sexually transmitted infection rate in teenagers. In addition, this capstone further examines how positive image can be encouraged at a young age through sex education through the perspectives of six health education teachers in California. This capstone is most valuable to educators, curricula writers, parents with children from ï¬fth to tenth grade, and school districts.
