What is sexting? What are the risks and rewards of sexting? How does pornography use influence sexting? What resources will help me sidestep requests?

Introduction to Sexting is the first of our two lessons on Sexting. It can be taught as a stand-alone lesson or before Sexting, Pornography & the Adolescent Brain. This lesson plan is suitable for 11-18 year olds.

This fully resourced lesson runs as a teacher-led class using slides and a Teacher’s Guide. There are opportunities for discussion in pairs, small groups and for feedback as a class. Pupils consider the impact of sexting including ‘slut shaming’ and comparing the risk of sexting to having consensual sex. The Teacher’s Guide provides you with all the information you need to speak confidently about the subjects raised by the issue of sexting and pornography. There are links to research papers where appropriate. No pornography is shown in this lesson.

The Reward Foundation has worked with a range of experts including more than 20 teachers, many experienced in developing training materials for schools, youth and community leaders, psychiatrists, doctors, psychologists and many parents. We have piloted the lessons in schools across the UK. One of the lead authors of the lessons was a board member of the (American) Society for the Advancement of Sexual Health, 2016-2019.

Resources: 18-slide PowerPoint (.pptx) and a 14-page Teacher’s Guide (.pdf). There hot links to relevant research and further resources.
