R.E.A.L. Kids Talk about Real Sex. Project Seed.
Turner, Carla Baade
One of eight papers from Project Seed, this paper describes a project in which 10 alternative high school students, one teacher, and one aide researched, wrote, interviewed, taped, and edited a 64-minute news format video on a variety of sexuality issues: anatomy, physiology, sexually transmitted diseases, birth control, pregnancy options (adoption, abortion), human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS), rape, incest, and sexual orientation. It is noted that 24 copies of the resulting video were sold to high schools, alternative education programs, an adolescent shelter, The AIDS Coalition, the Maine Department of Education Curriculum Division, and Activism 2000 in Washington, D.C. Goals and objectives of the project (HIV/AIDS peer education, video technology, career development) are listed, as are anticipated outcomes of the project. A procedures and instruction section explains how to implement such a project. Resources needed for the project are discussed and project costs are described. The telephone number of the teacher who initiated the program is included for those readers interested in undertaking a similar project. (NB)
