This year the Grade 8 Italian Science program deals with ” the reproductive system” and therefore Science teacher decided to integrate the notions of anatomy and prevention with a special meeting with an expert.
Relating to the recent news about the inappropriate use of social networks among juvenales, we have developed with the expert the following topics:
sexual offenses and their penalties
the age of consent
Sexual dysfunctions and their impact on the individual psychological sphere
sexuality in different cultures and parts of the world
The meeting was held by Dr.Federica Casnici psychologist, expert in sexology and sex education.
The students were very interested in the given topics, collaborative and asked lots of different questions.
Much interest arose around sexual offenses and their penalties. Infact, MILE Schol Middle students were unaware of crimes and related penalties in this area.
Grade 8 class did really appreciate this meeting as they could exchange their ideas and doubts about sexuality and how they can defend themselves in case of abuses.
The expert and prof. Alberton’s feedback were very positive. We hope that, as reported by the students in their comments, this experience helped them to better understand other cultures from this point of view: the affectivity and sexuality are the aspects of our human nature that can be very pleasant if we experience them correctly that means with respect for others.
