TONATTO, Suzinara  and  SAPIRO, Clary Milnitsky. New curriculum parameters of Brazilian schools and sexual education: na intervention proposal in sciences. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2002, vol.14, n.2, pp.163-175. ISSN 0102-7182.

The purpose of this study was to describe and to justify the importance of innovative practices in the teaching and learning process related to sexual education. In order to accomplish this goal, we offered interdisciplinary ways to deal with the questions about sexuality in our schools. This investigation presents a quali-quanti design which is and ethnographic description and an experiment consecutively. the subjects' participants were twenty-five students enrolled on the "7th grade" (junior high) of a private school of Porto Alegre, Brasil. The results depicted students' reflection and discussion in depth about the issues, allowing us to suggest that the school is a very important setting for achieving contextualized sex education through crosswise and interdisciplinary approaches.
