This paper presents a complete suggested curriculum for sex education for a young teenage audience. Included in this paper are sections on abortion, teen pregnancy, sexual victimization, abstinence, contraception, STD's, homosexuality, etc. It is designed for a 10 week course and has 10 topics, as well as assumption tests for students.

From the Paper:

"While some of the conservative views associated with the white, upper-middle class are present in South Pasadena, for the most part progressive and liberal views prevail, especially within the school system. South Pasadena High School is known for striving to prepare students for college in all ways possible, in many cases this means introducing students to controversial content, such as is seen in the universities, and encouraging open discussion and debate on said content. It is greatly with this in mind that I designed this curriculum to allow students to think about important issues relating to sex, and discuss them openly in the classroom setting. While some of the issues we will discuss, such as homosexuality, contraception, and abortion are controversial issues, they will be dealt with so as to create as little discomfort for the students and their parents as possible."
