Teaching Geography: Workshop 5

Sub-Saharan Africa

Programs and Activities: Part 2. Kenya

Going Further 2 (15 minutes)

Sensitive Subjects

Site Leader: Please help participants keep track of the time and facilitate group discussion.

Our lesson shows Shirley Hutchins's eighth-grade students working in a serious manner on the rather sensitive issue of HIV-AIDS. We see them maturely discussing condom use, freelance sex workers, and marital customs.

Take five minutes to briefly answer these questions in writing:

  • What opportunities and challenges do covering such subjects present?
  • What strategies can you think of to foster mature handling of similar subjects?
  • What other subjects might fall into the category of "sensitive"?

During the remaining time, discuss these issues with the group.
