New Hampshire HIV/AIDS Resource-Based Learning Curriculum Project.
Snider, Susan C., Ed.
The age appropriate units of AIDS/HIV instruction in this guide are based on the student outcomes listed in the "New Hampshire Educators HIV/AIDS Handbook: Curriculum and Policy Guide." All of the units, organized by grade levels, were written collaboratively by teams of New Hampshire educators, each team consisting of a library media generalist, a health educator, and a nurse educator or science teacher. Resource based learning, a process approach that integrates important lifelong learning skills with content learning, was selected as the framework for unit development. This approach places emphasis on how to extract, record, process, and use information from a variety of sources. The publication is divided into two parts. The first, an introduction, defines and explains resource-based learning in terms of the acquisition of information skills, the collaborative process, the teacher as facilitator, planning questions, and selection and use of the units. The second section, an appendix, provides information on planning for resource-based learning, examples of goals and objectives statements, examples of notetaking strategies, student checklists, and tracking sheets. The body of the document consists of 15 individual instructional units for grade 1-4 (which include: "Getting to Know Me,""What Is HIV/AIDS About," and Germs Make Me Sick"); grades 5-6 which include: "The Big 'D',""Be Aware and Show You Care,""What You Need To Know About HIV/AIDS," and "Communicable and Non-Communicable Diseases"); grades 7-8 (which include: "AIDS Education: The Tip of the Iceberg,""Learning about HIV/AIDS: Information, Resources and Cooperation,""Sharing the News About HIV/AIDS Infection," and "HIV/AIDS: Facts and Fiction"); and grades 9-12 (which include: "HIV/AIDS: Health Involves Values & Attitudes in Decision Strategies,""HIV/AIDS Risks: It's Your Responsibility,""Decision Making and Sexual Relationships;" and "Disease Transmission, AIDS and YOU."
