AIDS: A Catholic Educational Approach. Leader's Guide.
National Catholic Educational Association, Washington, DC.
This teacher/leader's guide for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) education using a Catholic approach builds upon materials presented in the teacher's manual. Considerations when implementing the AIDS curriculum are discussed, including involvement of the faith community and tailoring the program design with local decisions. Models for a total parish program, parish school program, and parish catechetical program are outlined. Ideas for teachers' inservice programs are given. The selection of leaders and teachers, materials, orientation, and agenda items for inservice programs are discussed. Suggestions for planning a parents' session are presented, focusing on the topics of assembling a planning group, communication with the parents, and suggestions for the parents' session itself. An annotated list of AIDS curriculum resources is included, with materials grouped within these types: church documents and other statements from Catholic sources; books, booklets, pamphlets, special issues, and reports; audio-visual programs; bibliographies and catalogs; journals; and AIDS-related organizations and hotlines.
