The five chapters in this manual outline an HIV/AIDS education program for grades K-5. Chapter 1 asks why HIV education should be taught in the primary grades, discusses who should teach HIV/AIDS education, and presents facts about adolescents and AIDS. Chapter 2 includes: (1) questions and answers about the bill that mandated K-12 HIV education in all Arizona public schools; (2) criteria and procedures for notification of school districts of HIV-infected students; and (3) a sample parental notification letter.

The fourth chapter supplies the suggested scope and sequence for HIV/AIDS education grades K-12. The final chapter provides sample lesson plans for grades K-5. Appendices provide: (1) an age-appropriate glossary of terms; (2) basic information about HIV for educators, common questions and answers asked by students, teaching tips and overhead transparencies; (3) infection control guidelines in the school setting, including universal precautions to prevent the spread of HIV disease and an OSHA fact sheet on bloodborne pathogens; (4) ways to involve parents and the local community in the HIV education program; (5) suggestions for teaching health education topics, including HIV, in multicultural classrooms; (6) community resources; and (7) a resource materials guide.
