Teaching Real Sex in Highschool - Teaching sex education is like telling a kid not to go in a cookie jar. A child usually asks for a cookie and the parent replies, “No.” “Don’t go into the cookie jar.” Then that child will climb or do whatever it can to get that cookie from the jar. As you can picture, parents say no without sharing the reason behind it or how to do what’s being asked. That is the problem not only with children, but also with teenagers. Parents, teachers, and mentors use the abstinence- only approach, which means they only teach high school students not to have sex and that it’s bad, but not all the facts behind it (Crooks 2014)....   [tags: abstinence, safe choices, teenagers]

Theories of Teaching and Learning - There are many theories that are relevant to classroom teaching today. Marsh (2008, p. 17) states that “each theory is nothing more than a set of reasonable suggestions”. A teacher should look at the information available to them and take what is necessary to achieve a positive learning environment in their classroom. This may mean taking a little part of one theory and combining in with another part of a different theory, there is no singular theory or theorist that encompasses everything that is required in a modern classroom....   [tags: motivation, constructivism, behaviourism]

The war between Evolution and Creationism has been going on for almost just as long (Bailey 63).
