Puberty: The Wonder Years focuses on two main goals:
- Promoting appreciation and respect for the amazing changes experienced by self and others.
- Equipping young people to postpone sexual intercourse.
Puberty: The Wonder Years includes curriculum for three consecutive years for fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students. The lessons are teacher friendly and youth engaging. Teachers are provided with full-color, animated slides to use with the lessons. Rubrics and other assessment tools are included.
Supplemental to its design for the school setting, it also includes activities that equip parents and other family members to engage with their children’s sex education. The activities encourage children to talk with their parents about their beliefs and family values.
The lessons develop the health skills children need to behave in a manner that is consistent with their beliefs and values:
- Limit setting
- Getting help
- Making friends
- Analyzing media messages
- Distinguishing between reliable and unreliable sources of information
Puberty: The Wonder Years fills the gap created by the scarcity of sexuality education resources for upper elementary and early middle school-aged students. Guided by the characteristics of effective sex and HIV education programs outlined in "Emerging Answers 2007" by Dr. Douglas Kirby, the lessons teach the skills needed to promote respect and postpone sexual activity. Teaching these lessons over three years provides a solid foundation for subsequent implementation of “Programs That Work” for sexuality and HIV education at higher grades.
