catchingonlater 1

Catching on Later is designed to assist teachers to explore these issues in the classroom. There are lessons which are specifically designed to increase the basic knowledge that is central to managing sexual health, but more commonly these lessons facilitate the exploration of the social world of young people and help them with the many decisions they face in that world.  Teachers with restricted time need to select a balance of these elements to make up a well-rounded program.
