    Subject:

    Growing and Changing

    A Student Book
    for the Fifth Grade Science Study
    of the Human Reproductive System

    Developed by

    The Science Department
    Jefferson County Public Schools
    1829 Denver West Drive
    Golden, Colorado 80401​

    Let me begin by Asking that my Wife by Respected in this Discussion and not the Issue. I Know about this because my Wife is an Elementary Teacher in Jefferson County, the Largest School District in Colorado... The last time she Taught 5th Grade, which was 3 years ago, she had this Material provided to her and her Class by the County... This is from her copy.

    Again, I will NOT answer questions about her and I am asking that she NOT be Discussed.

    This has been an ongoing Debate between myself and some who Deny this Exists or that it is and has been Taught for Decades in "Growing and Changing" for 5th Graders in Jefferson County...

    Adams County, which includes a lot of Denver Public Schools, were using the same type of Materials in Elementary back in the late 70's when I was that age and it's my Understanding that DPS proper has the same Materials.

    Here are some Notable pages from the Handbook that is given to each 5th Grader, unless their Parents Opt them out of the Course:

    Note the "Sexual Intercourse" section that starts on page 35.

    The reason this EVER became an Issue was because some on the Left think that "Gay Children" are Underserved in the Education System and need to be Included.

    My Question was, what do you do with this SexEd book?...

    It certainly doesn't Include ANYTHING for Homosexuals and thier "Intercourse", so should it?...

    If they aren't Included, isn't it Exlcusionary and Wrong?

    Or should, as I Believe, the subject of Homosexuality be Reserved for Adults?

    If you Believe that Homosexual Sex should be Included as not Exclude any Possible Homosexual Children, then how would you word it, Considering how "Sexual Intercourse" is Described in this Booklet for 5th Graders?

    Discuss.

    :)

    peace...

    There are other ways to post it.

    Anyone that is not blocking mal's website is free to chime in.

    I personally feel that the description of "sexual intercourse" on pages 35-36 is going overboard.

    I think it should focus on the simple science of the act...insertion of sperm by the male into the female so that the egg can be fertilized.

    Calling it "making love" and discussing the "emotional aspects" of the act is, in my opinion, inappropriate for a science curriculum.

    :confused: Would it be better to describe it as just a fun activity than making love?

    So, is this pamphlet teaching children intercourse in your view? Also, is the title page as presented by mal in the OP?

    No. It is not teaching them intercourse. But it is going a little further than I would in describing a natural interaction that occurs between two animals.

    That's how I feel too. Sex ed should be taught as pure biology with a smattering microbiology and preventative medicine.

    Fair enough...no moralizing, and it does sound as if an attempt at moralizing was made: making love.

    I am glad to have been proven correct.
