Parenting Week

My students need a Standard Ready-or-Not Tot for a parenting unit for my seniors. Many of my students are sexually active and need to know what it is like to take care of a child.

My Students

All students are required to work on an online platform called Buzz. I have added performance assessments to ensure my students have the opportunity to work collaboratively. At the end of the year I want my students to have the ability and knowledge to make healthy choices in their daily lives.

My students are at-risk teens.

All have either no knowledge of health concepts or believe completely inaccurate information. There are many students in the school that have had a child, had an abortion, or are currently pregnant with the average age of pregnant mothers being 16. It takes a significant amount of time to build relationships with my students and for them to trust you. I am in my second year teaching them and I have broken through the barrier with the majority of my students with much effort, time, and listening. My students need me to be there teacher, counselor, mother, sister, friend, and cheerleader. Many of my students have no self worth, self esteem, or confidence in their abilities. It is with constant and persistent effort that I work to break these chains.

My Project

I have 35 seniors in my 7th hour health class. During the months of May and June they will complete a performance assessment after completing Unit 6 - Building Familes/Parenting. My students will begin the performance assessment by completing a questionnaire asking them about their knowledge of parenting and what they would do in certain situations with their infant. The students will complete the same questionnaire when they complete the performance assessment. The students will take the babies home for one week and will be responsible for the baby for the entire week. The students will also engage in a group discussion upon completion addressing issues, positives, and negatives of the experience.

Engaging in unprotected sex is a common theme throughout my school.

It is highly probable that the seniors I have in my class will have a child at a young age. I want my students to know exactly what it is like to have to take care of an infant's every need for one week. This will hopefully encourage and strengthen my students to make better choices if/when they decide to have sex.
