Teaching Geography: Workshop 5
Programs and Activities: Part 2. Kenya
Going Further 2 (15 minutes)
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.
