AIDS: What Young Adults Should Know. Instructor's Guide and Student Guide.
Yarber, William L.
This curriculum allows students to learn about Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) at their own pace. The Instructor's manual presents the goals of AIDS education in a three-session lesson plan. The manual also outlines eight learning opportunities to reinforce in students the personal health behaviors and attitudes emphasized in the guide. Text questions are included along with a list of answers to commonly asked questions. Appendices contain student handouts and worksheets for learning experiences. The instructional emphasis of the student book is on personal preventive behaviors. Myths about AIDS transmission are discussed and students are encouraged to be advocates for AIDS prevention efforts. The material is divided into four sections dealing with: (1) the nature and definition of AIDS; (2) how AIDS is transmitted; (3) how AIDS can be prevented; and (4) what else students need to know.
