Teenage Pregnancy: An Intensive and Critical Problem in Search of a Solution. Student Fact Finder Leaflet.
This document presents materials from a course designed to teach adolescents about teenage pregnancy and parenting. The materials are organized into nine modules, each of which contains instructions on how to use the module; a pre- and post-test on the information presented in the module; a fact finder leaflet of information; and relevant activities. The module on family planning concentrates on a variety of methods for contraception and includes a chart that explains different methods of contraception; how each works; how effective each is; how each is used; and what problems, side effects, and advantages there are to each method. The module on things adolescents should know about pregnancy lists and describes various signs of pregnancy. The teenage parent module discusses consequences of childbearing and early childbearing and lists health risks to teenage mothers and their babies. The prenatal care module describes tests for mothers and babies and looks at diet and exercise during pregnancy. The module on the birth of a baby presents various aspects of labor and delivery. The postpartum module explains what to expect after the baby is delivered. The last three modules focus on child care and safety, the availability of social services, and child development. Vocabulary words and an answer key to pre- and post-tests are appended. (NB)
