The Social Studies Link to HIV Education. A Sourcebook for HIV/AIDS Education in the Social Studies Classroom, Grades 11-12.
This sourcebook was developed to present ideas on how to bring the discussion of the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) into the 11th and 12th grade social studies classroom, while continuing to focus on social studies concepts and skills. The manual's four main sections examine HIV and AIDS from the perspectives of U.S. history, economics, participation in government, and psychology. Each section contains background discussion material and suggestions for activities, which may be carried out either as class assignments or as extra credit projects. Each of the outlined activities includes an overview, teacher background, and follow-up assignments. Appendices include a student handout of what high school juniors and seniors need to know about HIV and AIDS, a synopsis for teachers of current information on HIV infection, an AIDS-myth fact sheet, a list of AIDS regional training centers, and lists of useful books and information sources.
