Positive Thinking. Language, Literacy and Numeracy Resources on HIV/AIDS for Teachers of Adult Education.
This resource guide is a collection of stories, articles, and worksheets on issues surrounding HIV/AIDS. It is intended to be informative and useful for adult language, literacy, and numeracy students. An HIV/AIDS introduction for teacher is followed by a section on further resources, which lists organizations which may provide guest speakers, support, and further information. It also lists several training packages and videotapes students may find useful, particularly if they are young adults. An HIV/AIDS introduction for students is designed to allay some concerns about this topic that students may have. A student questionnaire follows. It is identical to one that is found at the end of the materials so that changes in students' ideas and understanding of HIV/AIDS issues can be determined. An answer key is provided. Notes for teachers preceding the nine sections of worksheets provide language, literacy, and numeracy objectives as well as suggestions for extension activities. Section titles are as follows: (1) HIV/AIDS True Stories; (2) HIV/AIDS--What are the letters for? What do the words mean?; (3) HIV/AIDS--How do you get it? Fact or myth?; (4) HIV/AIDS--Australian statistics; (5) HIV/AIDS--world statistics; (6) HIV/AIDS--different opinions; (7) HIV/AIDS--community awareness; (8) HIV/AIDS newspaper coverage; and (9) HIV/AIDS--terms to avoid using.
