Lesson Selection Guidance

The 3R’s curriculum was carefully designed to meet all of the National Sexuality Education Standards. The Standards identify the minimum essential core content and skills for sexuality education K–12 given student needs, limited teacher preparation and typically available time and resources. Therefore, teachers and schools are encouraged to teach all of the lessons in the curriculum in their appropriate sequence. This is not always possible, however. Often teachers are faced with having fewer class sessions available to them to devote to sexuality education than is optimal. In these cases, it can be useful to have some guidance on which sessions to teach. The purpose of this Lesson Selection Guide, therefore, is to assist educators in choosing the most appropriate lessons to teach if they are not able to cover all of them.
