Summary: A Pregnancy Options lesson is included in the FLASH curriculum to provide factual information about these options to students. Homework assignments are included to allow students to explore their own and their family’s (culture’s, religion’s) values about them. The point of this lesson is not to lead a discussion about the values associated with any of the pregnancy options. This lesson is designed to simply provide factual information regarding a topic about which students are likely to have many questions. Nowhere in the lesson is the teacher or any student asked to share personal values.
