IM SEXY AND I KNOW IT!


LEVEL TWO | AS91239 (2.5) | ANALYSE ISSUES RELATED TO SEXUALITY AND GENDER TO DEVELOP
STRATEGIES FOR ADDRESSING THE ISSUES

What is this unit about?

Students are to learn about sexuality (sexual identity) and gender in contemporary New Zealand and the wider
world. Looking at how students fit into the worlds binary system and how they can break out of this.

Students will explore a range of factors that influence an individuals sexuality and gender and actions that can be
taken at personal, interpersonal and societal levels to address issues relating to sexuality and gender that arise from
these influencing factors.

Why teach this unit?

Adolescence is the period of life when most people begin to experience strong romantic attractions and sexual
feelings. It is also a time when some young people are questioning or further developing their gender and sexual
identity Clark, Fleming, Bullen, Denny, Crengle, Dyson, Fortune, Lucassen, Peiris-John, Robinson, Rossen, Sheridan,
Teevale, Utter (2013). With students becoming more aware of their identity there is an increase importance to
develop strategies for addressing the issues.

According to Youth12, there are roughly 1% of students in New Zealand identify as transgender. This can include but
not limited to: Trans, Queen, Faafafine, Whakawhine, Tangata ira Tane, Genderqueer. Another 96% did not
identify as transgender and approximately 3% were not sure.

Student are needed to gain and understanding of the basic concepts around gender, sex and sexuality. They need
to gain the ability to recognise the norms society creates around masculinity and femininity and the
effects/consequences of these norms. It is important for students to analyse varied views around gender, sex and
sexuality diverse people, and explain how norms about masculinity and femininity inform these views.

Students are to become familiar with the concept of social justice (fairness, inclusiveness and non-discrimination) and
its application in a gender identity and sexuality context.

PEDAGOGIES

It is expected that a range of pedagogies are used that are appropriate to your students. This range does
not all have to be in every lesson, but all students deserve to learn in their most efficient mode.
The challenge is to think on a rhetoric with yourself over the idea, just because you can and did learn it that
way, is that the best way for most of your class. This is an important part of offering the best solution to the
students in front of you, and your thoughts will be different depending on the class you are thinking about.
The choice of pedagogy will determine the success of learning for your students and hence their
engagement in our subject.

class. This is reflected in teachers making their lessons engaging to the students of all genders, sexuality,
cultures, ethnicities and learning styles. This section is a subject interpretation of the school policy and
