Game Plan is an excellent new tool for abstinence educators in their battle to preserve the innocence of our children. In an age of relentless sexual imagery in the media and society as well as in most sex education classes, this upbeat, positive curriculum provides welcome relief. Game Plan was developed in cooperation with basketball star A.C. Green of the Miami Heat. The eight-session curriculum - including student workbooks and a teacher's manual - uses sports themes to promote the benefits of abstinence until marriage. It begins by inviting students to list their goals in making "a game plan for life." Succeeding chapters deal with sex in the media, the "rules of the game" - why boundaries matter, the risks and consequences of sex before marriage, "halftime" - planning for the future regardless of what's already taken place in a student's life, developing healthy relationships, and "winning it all" in the good and worthy goal of marriage. Students are encouraged to take the "Abstinence Pledge" and make it work. (Studies have shown that teens who take this pledge are at less risk of pregnancy and STDs.) Great for secular groups! 7th - 9th grade.
