This manual is just what the title says!

At The Center for Sex Education, we found that many teachers and educators were researching for resources which better reflected and explained the lives and experiences of their LGBTQ students. 25 Lesson Plans on Sexual Orientation was written to help learners better understand a variety of sexual orientations and to represent their lived experiences.

Executive Director Bill Taverner of The Center for Sex Education noted, “In late 2015, several education- and health-promoting organizations released “A Call to Action: LGBTQ Youth Need Inclusive Sex Education,” identifying the need to address the problem of LGBTQ youth “sitting in classrooms where their teachers and textbooks fail to appropriately address their behaviors, identities, and experiences.”1 This has been an unacceptable state of the field for far too long, and The Center for Sex Education (CSE) welcomed the call to action — which came while we were working on developing this manual, and validated our resolve….This manual will not be the only response to the “Call to Action,” and it surely won’t be the last word. We hope it is the first of many that will help educate the public about sexual orientation and make all students feel welcome in the classroom.”

Included are 25 great lessons are plans which can be easily used and adapted by educators, and cover a broad spectrum of sexual orientations, including asexuality, bisexuality and the evolving fluidity of human sexuality. These lesson plans, prepared within the CSE ethos of providing honest and accurate information to expand knowledge of all identities and sexual orientations and to embrace the variety of sexual identities and orientation.
