Sex Ed

Spring 2020

Taught By: Elizabeth Slagus

Section: A

CRN: 6049

Credits: 3

Through a series of collective and individual assignments, Sex Ed will engage students as collaborators in developing arts-based sex education content for use online, in classrooms, and out in the world. We will be working in concert with the youth advocates and staff of Planned Parenthood New York (PPNY). Street campaigns, videos, role-playing exercises, performances and games will all be explored as proposals for new ways of thinking and re-thinking sex education. Students will explore: the history of sex education in the US, the role of artists and activists in raising awareness of social issues related to sex and sex education, and creative ways to encourage and engage public participation and consciousness. Students will also be exposed to the planning, development, and documentation methods necessary to create successful curricula, tools, and public programming, as well as participating in public art projects that engage the public around social issues.

Open to: All university undergraduate degree students. Permission is required to register: please contact the instructor, Elizabeth Slagus (slaguse@newschool.edu), to request permission.
