Streetwise to Sex-Wise provides an easy-to-use yet comprehensive model for a basic series on human sexuality for high-risk teens. It applies a “state-of-the-art” methodology of sexuality education to teens in nontraditional settings who often have limited academic skills and are resistant to classroom-based learning.
Streetwise is a comprehensive sexuality education curriculum covering a wide range of topics relevant to teens ages 13-19. The Third Edition has added new lessons on consent, sex and the internet, and pornography. All are simple, concrete and actively involve group members in the learning process. They extend beyond mere factual information and address attitudes, values, and skills, an approach that experts find is more likely to lead to positive behavior change in young people.
In addition, Streetwise to Sex-Wise provides background information on teaching education to high-risk teens, including profiles of the sexual-health concerns of five specific high-risk populations.
