New Sex-Ed resource for 2020

Introducing It’s Your Choice: Choose your own Sex Edventurethe new interactive video
series created to spark classroom discussion on sexual health, relationships and
wellbeing.

The aim of the video series and supporting resources is to enable group conversation
amongst young people – making sure there’s an engaging way to discuss healthy
behaviours. The content is underpinned by research that shows young people want more
opportunities to discuss emotional and practical relationship skills – what to expect and
how to cope, not just standard biological information.

  • Engage students with real life situations
  • Save time on lesson planning
  • Downloadable videos

1. Introduction
Meet Ash and Cam – they’re both ready for each other and looking forward to hooking up. But Cam has something on his mind – should he open up to Ash? Or keep it to himself?

2a. Open Up
What is ‘good sex’ and how do we talk about it? And when should we open up to our sexual partners?

2b. Keep It To Himself
Ash thinks Cam seems a bit ‘intense’. With a friend, Ash decides to get ‘back in control’.

3a1. Be Open
Cam tells Ash what’s on his mind – and so does she.

3a2. Deflect
Ash checks in with Cam because she feels like he’s acting ‘weird’.

3b3. Check In
After feeling like something’s amiss with Ash, Cam decides to check in on how she’s feeling.

3b4. Try again
After not picking up the obvious signs, Cam goes too far with Ash.

 

 

Choose Your Own Sex-Ed Venture offers content for 90 or 180 minutes so that you can choose discussion points and activities relevant to your students’ needs.

If you have an existing program for Relationships and Sexuality Education, this resource could be covered in 90 minutes. The 7 x short videos total approx. 20 minutes and with discussion could be used to consolidate your program around emotional literacy and sexual communication.

Whilst the students are given the chance to ‘choose their own adventure’, this resource has been designed in such a way that students must watch all 7 videos. This means that once they complete a pathway, they should go on to watch all of the alternate pathways as well to show the impact of the characters choices.

While you’re here, make sure you sign up to our mailing list for free resources, lesson plans and some exciting updates as we relaunch the Sex Ed portal in 2020.
