HIV/AIDS Prevention Education Curriculum Guide.
Virginia State Dept. of Education, Richmond.
This publication was designed to provide teachers with guidance in offering instruction in Human Immunodeficiency Virus/Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (HIV/AIDS) prevention education to students in the public and non-public schools of Virginia. This publication provides information that will help educators meet the needs of students in grades K-12. The scope of the curriculum includes four basic content areas regarding HIV/AIDS: (1) HIV infection and the disease AIDS; (2) HIV/AIDS is preventable; (3) HIV/AIDS affects everyone; and (4) HIV/AIDS help is available. It is noted that the concepts taught in each of the content areas as follows: there are some diseases that are infectious; there are decision-making and refusal skills to practice and behaviors to learn that will lead to a healthful lifestyle; there are mental, emotional, social, and economic implications of HIV/AIDS that affect everyone; and there are national, state, and community resources for HIV/AIDS information, help, and counseling. Curriculum lessons are arranged under each grade level. Each lesson states the objective; tells what existing state curricula guideline it relates to; lists the content; and lists teaching and learning strategies. A glossary is provided; resources are listed; and HIV/AIDS facts are summarized. (ABL)
