This resource package provides teaching strategies to help students discuss and integrate the information they must have to avoid high-risk sexual behavior. It also attempts to promote positive lifestyle decisions in the face of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS) epidemic. The specific goals of the program are to help students: (1) become aware of AIDS, how it is transmitted, and how it may be prevented; (2) understand the importance of practicing positive lifestyle behavior to avoid AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases; and (3) understand the need for responsibility in social behavior including sexual relationships. The emphasis of the program is on sound decision making and assuming responsibility for self and others. The instructional materials are presented as lesson plans which focus on four major topics: basic information about AIDS; a general overview of sexually transmitted diseases; sexual decision making; and social issues related to AIDS. Appendices include a vocabulary quiz, an AIDS quiz, several overhead pages, an AIDS fact sheet, a values vocabulary sheet, and a list of print and audio-visual resources (20 items). (IAH)
