Considerations for the development of a comprehensive HIV education program are presented in chapter 3. Chapter 4 supplies the suggested scope and sequence for HIV/AIDS education grades K-12. The final chapter provides sample lesson plans for grades 6-12. Seven appendices contain: (1) an age appropriate glossary of terms; (2) basic information about HIV disease for educators, common questions and answers asked by students, teaching tips, and overhead transparencies; (3) infection control guidelines in the school setting--universal precautions to prevent the spread of HIV disease and OSHA Guidelines; (4) ways to involve parents and the local community in the HIV program; (5) suggestions for teaching health education topics, including HIV, in multicultural classrooms; (6) community resources; and (7) resource materials guide--audiovisuals, books, pamphlets, and curricula.
