We’re just finishing up on our sex education unit. Here’s a question I asked them to write about and a few responses…
What did you learn about sexually transmitted diseases in this lesson?
“I learned that STDs are extremely important and you should do your best trying not to get one.”
“I learned that it is good to be abstinence. I learned you can die from HIVs. The final thing is that Genital herpes are for guys and girls.”
“I should stay away from STDs.”
“I learned that you can’t really trust anybody. Even your spouse can be infected.”
“That sex is a harmful thing.”
Edit: Just so we all know… YES. I did clarify with the student that sex is not harmful. Obviously as a teacher I wouldn’t let that slip by without talking to the student(s).
