In this GLE project, the main objectives of the program was to
stimulate knowledge about the diversity of topics of human sexuality and to
raise awareness about similarities and differences in sexuality in different
cultural contexts. For this purpose, besides the classes, the students were
divided into small bicultural groups and met weekly. The main goal of the project was for groups to
discuss cultural impacts on their assigned topic which varied from Gender Identity/ Expression to Sexual Education. The students were required to create a project outline and draft for their final presentations from their shared documents and research.
"The biggest highlight for me was seeing the students collaborate and build relationships. In their reflection papers, many students mentioned not only how they learned patience and compassion, but also how they felt as if they gained new friendships."
~ Susan Markunas
"The biggest highlight for me was realizing how the students challenged themselves, not only to study sexuality, but to face the anxiety of exposing themselves, speaking a second language. At the end of the project, they reported how much they had learned and how proud they were of themselves."
