The teaching plan will be for the proper use of condoms, for high school students ages, 13-19. Teenagers going through this stage of development would like to participate and feel some ownership of their lesson plan. Teenagers also have short attention spans, so things need to move quickly. (Piccolo 2010) The plan would be to set up a 45 minute class.

Role-playing would be used to put students into situations and showing them how to properly handle them; role-playing would also allow the students to participate in their learning. Teaching Plan:
