AIDS: A Catholic Educational Approach. Teacher's Manual.
National Catholic Educational Association, Washington, DC.
This curriculum guide responds to the need for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) information that is correct, developmentally appropriate, culturally sensitive, and morally consistent with Gospel values. The intended uses are described to be in Catholic schools and catechetical programs. A section providing orientation for teachers and parents in a Catholic setting discusses the moral context for AIDS and summarizes medical information about AIDS. Basic considerations for the teacher are discussed; a chart lists 55 AIDS-related learning objectives in the areas of Christian response, basic information, and transmission and prevention information, and classifies them by lesson and grade numbers. Forty lesson outlines for kindergarten through grade 12 are provided. Lesson outlines include objectives, an overview, basic information and vocabulary, suggested materials, teaching and learning activities, and closure. Sample transparencies and handouts are included. Four articles used in lessons by Pope John Paul II, Cardinal Basil Hume, Cardinal Joseph Bernadin, and the Bishops of the California Catholic Conference are presented. A glossary of terms is included. (ABL)
