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.
Students will be assessed on various issues relating to sexual health, including the ability to:
- 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
- Describe potential changes and outcomes related to particular personal behaviours and community actions
- Name health services available for people in relation to their sexual identity
- List resilience and assertiveness strategies in relation to their sexuality.
