Praxis Site Abstract

Jessica Tucker

Most of observations and in class experiences will be done through the community partnership program with between community health organization.  With this partnership, I will be observing and possibly leading sex education classes at an elementary school in Philadelphia with a sex education instructor.  The sex education program at this elementary school will be 11 weeks long, covering 11 sections.  Classes are once a week for less than an hour. (I will be observing several different classes a week covering the same material).  The topics covered range from puberty to reducing the risks of STD and pregnancy.
