Impressive source of information. Not engaging, accessible but clunky.

How I Use It
This is an informational resource which can be accessed by students in classes or at home. I would use this in my 9th grade class during our unit on sexual reproduction, birth control, and STDs. It is difficult to navigate in that the menus are all in alphabetical list form. Once you find the page you want the information is supplemented by images and videos.
My Take
I would have to give specific instructions, such as where to look for information. The site is not pretty... They would benefit greatly from images in the menus as well as other languages besides English and Spanish. I love the fact that there is also for boys http://www.youngmenshealthsite.org/. I will definitely use these sites.
