Junior High Comprehensive Sex Education Curriculum

With support from community members, educators, and youth, WHC has assembled, adapted and created a comprehensive curriculum for the junior high years in both English and French. We would like to credit Beyond the Basics: A Resource for Educators on Sexuality and Sexual Health, Our Whole Lives Curriculum, Teen Talk and Sexuality Education Resource Centre (SERC). Sex education goes beyond anatomy and includes discussions about gender, sexuality, consent, media literacy, and healthy relationships. The comprehensive sex education outline includes lesson plans and curriculum connections for the following topics:

  • Body Image
  • Communication Skills
  • Consent and Sexual Assault
  • Emotional Well-Being
  • Gender Literacy
  • Healthy Relationships
  • Media and Digital Literacy
  • Puberty
  • Readiness and Safer Sex
  • Sexual Orientation: Feelings and Attractions
  • Social Identities: Privilege and Oppression
  • Substance Use
  • Values and Beliefs
