The story of 2 High School Girls — Gertrude and Bertha, is a comparative story. Jackie Brewton used to illustrate the advantages of not having sex before marriage during my health class. By example, Jackie taught me the importance of stories in revealing a moral point without being over bearing. The listener relates / becomes the character in the story. By the end of the story no one wants to be Bertha; the students emotionally live thru three relatable incidents and their consequences based on Bertha’s / Gertrude’s sexual choices. Emotions lead to actions / behaviors particularly if you connect them with personal goals.
*Jackie’s video (a successful motivational speaker) speaks on Dreams / Decisions / Destinies – “The Sex Talk Every Guy Needs to Hear – I trust you with my Life” is an excellent resource for any Health class. You can get an idea of how influential she is by viewing a video trailer of her talk at – (http://jackiebrewton.com/the-sex-talk/) You can also find her at (http://jackiebrewton.com).
