All About Puberty! | Period Edition (FLEX)

In this four-part FLEX course, I take an age-appropriate, and medical approach in teaching learners about the anatomy and hormones behind menstrual cycles and periods, as well as how to best be prepared for their first (or next!) period.

Class experience

Class Objectives:
Students will be able to identify internal and external female reproductive anatomy
Students will understand the terminology surrounding menstruation, opening up opportunities for conversations with parent figures
Students will understand how to be prepared for their first periods
Students will be familiar with different period product options, and how to use them
Puberty is an important and crucial topic for young learners to experience with appropriate guidance. I have taught over 5,000 learners on Outschool using my original puberty curriculum and hope to continue this for many years.

While obtaining my bachelor's degree in Exercise Science, I took opportunities to learn about sexuality, the science of puberty, and human biology through multiple university-level courses. I was also an assistant teacher in a college-level anthropology course for two years, where I taught lectures on topics such as race, gender, identity, and cross-cultural interactions. I also worked as a medical scribe and assistant in an OBGYN office, logging over 1,000 clinical hours while working with patients of all ages. 

I am currently attending medical school, where I have completed in-depth courses on human anatomy, biochemistry, pathophysiology, and reproduction. I will be receiving my MD degree in 2024. I have a passion for women’s health and seek to be an educational resource for many young people to come. 

I have both educational and clinical experience with sexual education and human biology. With this class, I will use my science, anthropology, and clinical medicine background to provide timely, useful information for learners beginning puberty.
Homework Offered
There will be individual activities such as quiz questions and open-ended questions that learners will be required to respond to as they move throughout the course. Learners will complete a "Time to Climb" activity, where they can choose an avatar to represent themselves as they complete quiz questions and try to make it to the top of the mountain! There are also ice breaker challenges where learners are encouraged to ask parent figures about puberty topics.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Learners are informally assessed by their successful completion of the course module and in their interactions in the Outschool classroom. Certificates of completion are available upon request.
Grades Offered
Paper and writing utensils for optional note-taking. Learners may also print out the class slides to annotate while completing the module.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
In this class, we will be taking a medical approach to anatomically female puberty and menstruation. Because of the subject, there will be graphics and discussions on potentially sensitive topics. Please note that I will take a basic, age-appropriate approach and allow time for students to ask questions. Participation is encouraged, but not mandated. If these topics make your student uncomfortable, they need not participate in the discussion. Please note that there will be cartoon graphics illustrating anatomy and puberty changes.

Potentially sensitive topics will be covered:
- basic female reproductive anatomy, such as learning to identify a uterus, labia, vagina, and breasts
- appropriate hygiene practices for menstruation, such as tampon/pad application and removal

This class is meant to create a virtual safe space where students can have a productive, informative conversation about how they will be or are currently affected by puberty. I will also be providing resources for appropriate further puberty education for parents and students alike. 
Learners will be provided a copy of my original slides. I encourage learners to take notes on these slides throughout the class and to only use them personally. At the conclusion of the course, a list of resources for future puberty education will be provided.
