Alternative Techniques for Teaching about HIV/AIDS in the Classroom.
Peace Corps, Washington, DC. Information Collection and Exchange Div.
This volume is a collection of interactive games and activities created to supplement existing curricula on Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and designed to give students a sense of responsibility in the fight against AIDS while taking the fear out of AIDS education. All of the games and activities in the volume have undergone pretesting. Following a brief description of who can get AIDS, there are guidelines for AIDS instruction for kindergarten and primary school through grade 4 and for grades 5 and 6. Following sections contain basic information games, lesson plans for teaching that germs cause disease and about communicable diseases with a sample lesson plan and an AIDS action plan. Further sections contain 10 vocabulary games that teach body part, prevention techniques and disease terms, 6 transmission games, 7 prevention games, 5 board games on nutrition and AIDS, 8 dramas and role plays, and 3 general activities including puppets in teaching, songs, and other ideas. An appendix provides an example brochure of an AIDS action plan and cards for four instructional games. (JB)
