Description - Teaching AIDS by Douglas Tonks
Throughout the debate over how - and if - AIDS education should be taught to school age children, teachers who want to bring the subject of AIDS into their classroom have had few, if any, resources to guide them. Teaching AIDS responds to the need for AIDS education material with a practice-based, interactive curriculum that will enable teachers to effectively educate students about the risk of AIDS and HIV infection. Teaching AIDS begins with a discussion of how teachers can create an environment of support for an AIDS education programme. Recognizing that AIDS education must differ for students of different age groups, the author presents tailored, age-appropriate content - what and how teachers should communicate AIDS information to young children, older children and teenage students. Teaching AIDS also addresses actual methods teachers can use to influence their students' attitudes and behaviour by helping them to recognize problem situations in which risks might arise, and presenting them with the actual skills they need to protect themselves in such situations.
