It's Up to Us. An AIDS Education Curriculum for ESL Students.
This curriculum offers lesson plans for 5 hours of Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) education instruction for high school and young adult students of English-as-a-Second Language (ESL). It helps students develop English language skills while it helps them understand the AIDS risk factors. The curriculum is designed to help cope with the social pressures that might lead to behaviors that could put them at risk for HIV infection. Each lesson incorporates specific AIDS education and ESL objectives and develops the critical thinking, reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills at the core of every sound ESL program. Copy-ready background materials, exercises, and activities are provided for each lesson. Appendixes include supplementary exercises and handouts, a copy of the Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) resolution on AIDs, and an international AIDS resource list with addresses and telephone numbers.
