Grade 9-12 Teacher Manual
Sex Education/HIV


The Michigan Model for HealthTM Grade 9-12 Healthy & Responsible Relationships curriculum is a sex education and HIV prevention curriculum that focuses on abstinence as the safest and healthiest choice for school-aged youth and teaches risk reduction strategies for youth when they eventually become sexually active. Relationships are central to an individual's life. The quality of relationships affects each person's behaviors, health, enjoyment of life, and likelihood of success. Therefore, healthy relationships are a foundational theme for positive sexual behavior taught throughout this curriculum.

The Healthy & Responsible Relationships curriculum includes 22 lessons addressing HIV, other STI prevention and pregnancy prevention. Given the sensitive nature of many of the topics addressed in this curriculum, implementation guidelines are provided on training, teacher resources, and teaching techniques and tips. 

The Healthy & Responsible Relationships curriculum is an effective and evidence-based Tier 1 health education curriculum that addresses the major youth health risk behaviors identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that contribute to the leading causes of death, disability, and social problems among youth in the U.S.  In addition, skills taught throughout the MMH curriculum align to the five CASEL core social emotional learning competencies including: self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills, and responsible decision-making.  

The curriculum provides teachers with:
  • fully scripted and user-friendly lesson plans to help teachers prepare to teach.  
  • lesson objectives and correlation with Michigan and National Health Education Standards, time and materials chart, preparation tasks, tips, and lesson procedure. 
  • teacher resources including streaming videos; student worksheets and pre-/post-assessments (PDF); teacher keys, teacher references, family resource sheets, assessment rubrics and/or checklists (PDF and/or MS Word); and online resources such as PowerPoints.
