Centering Culture: teaching for critical sexual literacy using the sexual diversity wheel

Journal of Moral Education 26 (3):273-283 (1997)
Abstract Expanding on the author's earlier work, this essay explicates the concept of critical sexual literacy within the context of four curricular models for multicultural sexuality education: tolerance, diversity, difference and differánce. The Sexual Diversity Wheel is presented as a pedagogical tool to facilitate student inquiry into the multiple cross?cultural constructions and valuations of gender and sexuality. Illustrating these differences, the author describes his fieldwork activities in the central Philippines and explores the implications of these findings for those teaching about sexuality in western societies
