A high school in Oregon sparked outrage after a teacher asked students to write about their ‘sexual fantasy’ that includes three elements such as candles, massage oil or feathers.
Students in the Churchill High School Health Class in Eugene were asked to make up missed coursework by completing a 10-point assignment titled ‘Fantasy Story’.
The assignment says: ‘For those students who were absent, you will write a short story of one or two paragraphs. This story is a sexual fantasy that will NOT involve penetration of any kind or oral sex (no way to transmit an STI).
“Your story should show that you can show and receive loving physical affection without having sex.”
Teacher Kirk Miller gave students homework through Canvas, an online learning management system, and also asked them to Choose three items, such as candles, massage oil, feathers, and flavored syrup, to use in your stories.

After the homework was posted to a Facebook group, it received hundreds of comments from parents.
One said: “If a grown man asked my daughter to share her sexual fantasies with him, I would be furious and go to the police.” No teacher has to ask this of a child.
Katherine Rogers, whose 16-year-old daughter is in Mr. Millers’ class, said the students felt “mortified, uncomfortable and scared” after receiving the assignment.
She said some students chose to answer the fantasy assignment from the point of view of a character in the cartoon ‘Kung Fu Panda’ to avoid getting too personal.
She said oregon live: ‘The district reviews these curricula before they are approved, right? Did you really read this? If this was reviewed, how did it slip through the cracks? I could see this easily turning into a national scandal.
What is the canvas?
Canvas Student allows students to access their online courses and groups.
Students can submit assignments, participate in discussions, view grades and course materials.
The mobile app also provides access to course calendars, to-dos, notifications, and chat messages.
Following outrage from parents online and at school, Principal Missy Cole sent a letter saying Churchill High administration was working with the district office to revise the health curriculum “to review the context of homework “.
For now, homework has been removed from the curriculum and will not affect student grades, the Eugene School District 4J confirmed.
In a statement to the New York PostThe director of the program for the health curriculum called Our Whole Lives, Melanie Davis, said the district was pursuing an “unauthorized” and “out of context” facilitated group activity currently out of print.
As part of the same health class with Mr. Miller, the students were given an assignment called “Who Would You Do It With?”, according to parent Katherine Rogers.
She said the instructions for the task said: ‘List on the booklet the initials of a man or woman with whom you would do each activity. You can use the same person for multiple activities.’
Her daughter wasn’t in class that day, but she was told the project involved a virtual spinning wheel labeled with sexual categories.
Supposedly, the students were instructed to respond when the wheel stopped.
