Peace Corps, Washington, DC. Information Collection and Exchange Div.
This resource manual discusses Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and offers suggestions on activities and games that can be used to enhance education. The manual begins with question-and-answer sections that address basic facts about AIDS, such as its transmission, prevention, cure, infection in the workplace, loss of income from illness, and protecting one's family from AIDS. A section on teaching about AIDS lists ten tips for talking about AIDS, five techniques to avoid, some hints on talking to children about AIDS, age-appropriate AIDS education guidelines, tips for using condoms, and instructions for cleaning intravenous drug works. The next section provides 17 activities and games, such as a true/false test, the AIDS myth or fact game, the condom time bomb game, a simulation of how sexually transmitted diseases are spread, a role play about reactions to a person with AIDS, the AIDS risk game, and modifications of such games as Concentration or Snakes and Ladders. A resources section lists Thailand sources of audiotapes and videotapes, brochures, games, and other educational materials. A final section promotes correct language in addressing the sensitivities of the disease; it presents a style guide concerning AIDS terminology and a vocabulary list in Thai and English. (JDD)
