Journal of Health Education Teaching, v2 n1 p12-25 2011
The HIV/AIDS epidemic has taken a tremendous toll on the population of the United States. College students, including African-Americans aged 13-24 years, across the nation are susceptible to contracting sexually transmitted diseases including HIV/AIDS as they participate in unsafe sex practices. The purpose of this article is to provide teaching ideas and learning methods from a social cognitive-theory-based intervention and an HIV/AIDS knowledge based intervention conducted among a sample of African-American college students. A variety of teaching methods such as demonstration, brainstorming, lecturing, group discussion, power-point presentations and role-playing were used. There were 28 workshops (14 knowledge-based and 14 theory-based) conducted over a two month period. Results demonstrated that almost all of the workshops adhered to the session activities guidelines.
