Health Education Level 10 Sexual Health

Subject Area: K-10 Health and Physical Education
Author: Sam Keast, Nick Watson, Aimee Short, Geraldine Brooks


Physically, emotionally and socially, adolescence is a time of great change, and it is important for adolescents to understand what these changes entail. One of the major aspects of changing personal identity for adolescents is their growing sexuality. For this task, students watch excerpts from Episode 3 of ‘Whatever! The Science of Teens’ (SEX). This episode focuses on teenagers themselves, discussing their relationships and sexual experiences, and the issues they face. There is also input from experts on the brain physiology that underlies sexual behaviour. The students were required to complete an Answer Booklet.

Assessment Objectives

  • Describe the effect of family and community expectations on the development of personal identity and values regarding their sexuality
  • Describe the health risks associated with a sexually transmitted infection
