Tools for Teaching Comprehensive Human Sexuality Education gives educators a hands–on resource filled with interactive activities to engage students′ thinking and skill development, both in and out of the classroom. The book contains ready–to–use lesson plans referencing both the National Sexuality Education Standards and the National Health Education Standards, and is arranged into chapters by the seven topic areas outlined in the National Sexuality Education Standards. These include: anatomy and physiology, puberty and adolescent development, identity, pregnancy and reproduction, sexually transmitted infections, healthy relationships, and personal safety.

These dynamic "pick and choose" lessons and activities have been field tested in classrooms and workshops by the authors, who are recognized experts in this area. Many of the lessons contain an opening activity to immediately engage students, followed by student–centered learning experiences such as case studies, simulations, real–life scenarios, self–assessments, journals, and individual and group projects/presentations. Each lesson incorporates the essential knowledge and skills that can empower students to make healthy decisions related to their sexual health, and include performance indicators detailing what students should know and be able to do by the end of grades 8 and 12.

In addition, this book includes supplementary internet and web resources and assessment projects, as well as "Home– School Connection" assignments to support family communication for sexuality.
