Discussing sexuality in the classroom

Practical tips for teachers

Commissioned

Teachers can play an important role in students’ healthy relational and sexual development. You can pay attention to this subject with specifically designed lessons. But it’s even more important to address relational and sexual development within the general curriculum, whenever the topic comes up in class. Discussing about sexuality is not always easy. This document provides practical tips for teachers for discussing sexuality in the classroom. This overview is based on the Dutch report 'Seksualiteit bespreken in de klas, hoe doe je dat?'
