This booklet, written for teachers who have a student with cancer in their classes, answers questions and indicates other sources of information and support. Suggestions are offered to help teachers contact close friends and relatives who can facilitate the student's continued education. Explanations of cancer, various forms of the disease, and its treatment and effects are discussed. Approaches for dealing with the student, peers and classmates, and parents are given, guidelines for school reentry are suggested, and references to additional materials and organizations are made. Other health-related concerns about the student with cancer are addressed and special concerns of secondary school students are discussed. Cases of terminal illness and death are reviewed in terms of coping strategies employed by classmates and parents. Resources for additional information are also listed, including cancer information organizations and bibliographies for educators and children. (Author/NRB)
