Why Choosing the Best Works:

Choosing the Best utilizes the following six keys to effective abstinence-centered, sexual risk avoidance and relationship education:

  • Motivational Learning Environment — Video vignettes of real-life teens, in-depth discussions, classroom exercises and role-plays engage the students in learning.
  • Medical Learning Model — Medically accurate, current information on STDs, teen pregnancy and emotional consequences provides students with the facts they need to make the healthiest choices for their future..
  • Relationship Education and Refusal Skills — Verbal and non-verbal assertiveness training strengthens students’ confidence and ability to handle negative peer and relationship pressures.
  • Sexual Violence Prevention—In-depth discussions ensure students know how to recognize and prevent child sexual abuse and other forms of sexual violence, as well as how to get help if they or someone they know is a victim.
  • Parent Involvement — Student Manual provides at-home opportunities for critical parent-student interaction.*
  • Character Education —  Each lesson challenges students to develop important traits such as self-respect, respect for others, compassion, honesty or courage.
