Ready To Get Started with Sex Ed To-Go?

Sex Ed To-Go is completely free for teachers and students. Reference our FAQs here to learn how to assign courses, make lesson plans, and more.

  • How do I assign courses to students?

    You can copy and share the course link directly with students in the classroom management system you already use. In our teacher-facing topic specific courses, we give you a copy-and-paste, editable explanation with screenshots and everything to guide students through registration. Once they are used to the process, you can just put the course url into your classroom management program with deadlines. Easy-peasy.

  • How can I be sure students completed their courses?

    Each student-facing course generates a completion certificate with the students’ name, course name and student email. Have them upload it to your classroom management system as you would with any assignment. Seamless.

  • I am really uncomfortable talking about sex. Can you help with this?

    Absolutely! Our series on Being an Effective Sex Educator contains five intro courses – each 10-25 minutes – to cover the basics. You’ll learn how to focus on facts not values, how to categorize and answer student questions (with examples!), and how to re-direct from personal questions to what students need to know. All the things that make most teachers nervous!

  • How much does Sex Ed To-Go cost?

    Nothing. Zero. Zilch. It’s all free because we are committed to supporting access to comprehensive, medically accurate, inclusive sex education to all young people, regardless of where they live, who they are, or how much money their school or district has. Occasionally we might share a link to a fabulous resource that does have a fee involved, but we’ll always warn you first.

  • Could you help me prepare my own presentation for class? Do you have any worksheets, quizzes or other classroom activities?

    If you don’t want to assign our courses directly, you can download the slides and scripts we use from our "How to Teach Specific Topics" courses, under the module “Sex Ed To-Go Course Slides”. Each of our "How to Teach Specific Topics" courses also has an entire section of classroom materials: links to other lesson plans and downloadable and editable worksheets, knowledge checks and classroom activities. We also suggest supplemental videos if you want to go deeper. Steal away. Our content is your content.

  • Do you integrate with Learning Management Systems like Canvas or Google Classrooms?

    Sex Ed To-Go is hosted on Thinkific which requires each student to register and log in. It’s easy for you as a teacher to copy over course links into your classroom management system – in fact our "How to Teach Specific Topics" courses give you copy-and-paste directions for assigning the parallel student course. And all student-facing courses generate a completion certificate that students can upload into your system like they would any other assignment.

  • Do you have any courses designed for people with disabilities?

    For students with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities, you can use any of our courses that are relevant for their cognitive level (so if they process information at a 14-year-old level, anything for 8th graders could work). We also have a two-course series for educators to support making sex education inclusive and accessible for people with a variety of disabilities. In the first course we cover basic background on disabilities and ableism, tips for making sex education more accessible to all students, and how to support students, families and caregivers. The second course covers tips for making traditional sex ed topics more relevant for people with disabilities, topic-specific considerations (like condom use, birth control, and anatomy) and specific tips for working with people with physical disabilities or people with intellectual or developmental disabilities (I/DD), and curriculum resources.

What Other Teachers Are Saying

About “How to Teach Specific Sex Ed Topics” Content

“It is like a one stop shop in terms of having some very relevant current materials and resources. These aren't like a 20 year old textbook or anything like that. They're coming from diverse perspectives. There's a wide range of resources for somebody who's starting out, like I was like a couple years ago. It would've been a great place for me to start. So I'm a little upset that I wasn't introduced to it until now.”
