We envision this curriculum as a collaboration and hope that sex educators and their students will send comments to improve the curriculum and even invent their own lessons that would fit into a sexual ethics perspective.
You can share general feedback on Sexual Ethics for a Caring Society by clicking the pink “feedback” link at the top of this page.
If you have feedback on a specific lesson, go to that lesson and click the “feedback” link at the top of the page.
In the beginning, after the launch, we would most like to know what important ETHICS areas are missing. (We save the health lessons for the health curricula!!!) We also want to know in what ways we may not have been inclusive and where our own biases many have emerged. Then, if you use a lesson in a class, write and tell us and each other what worked, what didn’t work, what you changed, and what sparked great discussion.
Finally, please do write a lesson for us. We will include it and give you credit for it or work with you to make the lesson fit in with our perspective regarding including philosophy readings and philosophical questioning.
The reason why this curriculum is free is because we want to share it! So feel free to share it with others and maybe, together, we can reclaim talk about “values” in progressive curricula, show politicians that all kinds of ethical questions belong in the sex ed curriculum, that we need not be afraid of religion as part of sex ed, and that “good” sex ed isn’t just about the how to or how not to, but also about relationship, caring, fairness, responsibility, justice, respect, and mutuality.
