    While arguments for and against teaching abstinence, the use of contraceptives and sexual identity are becoming more and more polarised, most people agree that students must learn to navigate an increasingly sexual world. Sex Ed for Caring Schools presents a curriculum that goes beyond the typical health education most students receive today. As part of a critical pedagogy movement that connects education to social justice enterprises, this book and the corresponding online curriculum encourage students to talk, write and think about the moral and relational issues underlying sex in society today. Addressing the real concerns of today's teens, this book includes lessons on pornography, prostitution, media objectification, religion and stereotypes.

In Embracing a Culture of Joy, he voices that joy can motivate students to adopt a love of learning. The roles teachers play and the demands placed on them are complex and time-consuming. However, to equip students with the skills and qualities they'll need to succeed in college and careers - as well as to lead fulfilling lives - educators need to bring joy to their classrooms each day.
