Join us for a talk by Cindy Pierce: SEXPLOITATION, Helping Kids Develop Healthy Sexuality in a Porn-Driven World.
Woodstock High School Library
100 Amsden Way, Woodstock, VT 05091
Free of Charge, Public Welcome
Cindy Pierce is a social sexuality educator and comic storyteller who is on a mission to give students perspective and information so that they can better navigate cultural, media and peer pressures, particularly around their social lives and sexual relationships. She also equips parents and educators with key information to help them guide their kids and students through these murky waters.
By weaving together expert opinions, personal anecdotes, and the real feedback of today’s college and high school students, Cindy helps make those ‘difficult’ conversations a little less difficult for everyone.
She is the author of Sexploitation: Helping Kids Develop Healthy Sexuality in a Porn-Driven World (Bibliomotion, 2015) and Sex, College and Social Media: A Common Sense Guide to Navigating the Hookup Culture (Bibliomotion, 2016).

Congratulations to our own Ryan Becker, 8th grade physical science teacher. Ryan was selected to be one of six educators from across the United States for Science Friday's Educators Collaborative.
These six teachers, who have found inspiration in Science Friday media, have put together a group of teaching resources that anyone can use to go out and do the science we cover every week. Science Friday’s education program assistant, Xochitl Garcia, and two of our new teacher collaborators, Ryan Becker and Katharine Hinkle, joined host Ira Flatow on Friday, October 21st to kick off an inspiring partnership in science education.
Here's a link to the show segment. Give it a listen. http://www.sciencefriday.com/segments/introducing-the-science-friday-educator-collaborative/
