Looking into AIDS [Student Book and Instructor's Guide].
Yarber, William L.
These materials include both the student book and the instructor's guide for a curriculum designed to provide upper elementary/middle school level students with information about how Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) is transmitted and how HIV infection is prevented. The Student Book covers: reasons for learning about AIDS; pre- and post-study self-evaluations on what students know and believe about AIDS; information on the AIDS problem, HIV infection and AIDS, the transmission of HIV, avoiding HIV, responsible health decisions, and HIV/AIDS help; an HIV Prevention Action Checklist; activities for health skills enhancement; a pronunciation glossary of HIV/AIDS related terms; summary of HIV/AIDS facts; and sources of HIV/AIDS help. The Instructor Guide describes the goals, guidelines, and information strategies of school HIV/AIDS education. Sections of the guide present a four-session lesson plan, followed by nine different learning opportunities and five different types of test questions. Three appendices provide: student worksheets for the learning opportunities, handouts that can be reproduced for students, and a list of selected HIV/AIDS education resources. (ND)
