What the teacher does
1. Decide how to teach this activity.
a) Give each student an activity sheet and have them follow the instructions.
b) Divide the class into small groups and assign a peer leader for each.
c) Draw the diagram on the blackboard and read out the description of each person. Have the students discuss amongst themselves or in their group the unsafe behaviours for each person. Then have them rank the four people according to their behaviour, from safest to least safe (1-4). Only one activity sheet is needed if (c) is used.
- Person A: wet kissing and possibly touching genitals
- Person B: sex without a condom; boyfriend has used unsterilized needles and has had sex with a number of sexual partners without using a condom
- Person C: unsterilized needles for ear-piercing; sex with a condom
- Person D: no risk behaviours
2. Discuss the answers to the question under Teacher asks.
What would the person in box 4 (B) have to do to reduce her chance of getting HIV/AIDS/STD?
Answers will vary but they could include: not have sex; use a condom; ask her boyfriend to get tested; have non-penetrative sex.
You must decide how you are going to form groups. It is better if the teacher does this rather than allowing students to form their own groups. Groups should be no larger than 6. You should determine beforehand which peer leader will be with which group.
