    Anonymous Question Box: Crafting and Skills

    November 29, 2017 | 4:00-6:00 PM

    Questions written on index cards and slipped into an anonymous question box are a staple of sexual health education and something students look forward to exploring! 

    In this workshop, we will brainstorm strategies for dealing with challenging questions, take a deeper look at finding the question behind the question, and share strategies for addressing questions from students with diverse values and backgrounds. At the same time, you’ll be crafting your very own creative and colorful anonymous question box to take back to class with your newfound Q&A confidence. Bring along some sample questions from your classroom and join us for this fun-filled workshop! 

    This is a workshop for grades K-12 and is appropriate for, teachers and staff who deliver and/or support sexual health education in their school community.

    Held at: The BPS Health & Wellness Department Office
