HIV Education for Adult Literacy Programs.
Smith, Barbara E.
This staff development package is designed to inform adult literacy practitioners about Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome/Human Immunodeficiency Virus (AIDS/HIV) and to facilitate implementation of HIV education in adult literacy programs. It is intended to teach them to plan and implement HIV education for their adult literacy students and to create a forum for staff development about AIDS/HIV. A guide for teachers and a handbook of instructions are included. The instructional guide provides materials on staff preparation and lesson preparation, background information about HIV and AIDS, and four sample lessons for an HIV education program for adult literacy students. Each lesson contains a goal, an outcome objective, a list of instructional materials, and a set of activities. Examples are then presented of integration of information about HIV infection and AIDS in other content areas. Fifty-eight pages of resources are provided: listings of videos, articles and books, newsletters and brochures, journals, contact people for the AIDS Regional Training Centers, hotlines, and additional organizations addressing AIDS and People with AIDS Coalition Resource Directory. Other contents include a glossary of terms and photocopy masters of materials used in the sample lessons. The handbook of instructions describes the complete instructional package (guide, handbook, and videotape) including its purpose, its intended audience, and variety of options for both staff development and programming for students. Statistics, medical updates, and new resources are included. A brochure on HIV education for adult literacy programs is attached. (YLB)
