This strategy will help students to:

  • locate current and relevant information on sexual health education.


  1. Pose a question or statement for students to consider and write their own list of five responses on a piece of paper. For example: What are five potential consequences of having unprotected sex? 

  2. Students form pairs and share the responses on their lists.

  3. Each pair considers both lists and streamlines these by choosing five responses to form a new list. 

  4. Each pair then joins with another pair to make a group of four.

  5. The process of sharing and negotiating is repeated. Once again a new list of five responses is formed for the group of four. 

  6. Groups then write their final five on a board for the class to compare and discuss.
