0-5min Introduction: - Attendance

- General hello
- Question and Answer period (could be driven by theme or current events).
- Show students the outline for this class and what needs to be done by end. Announce they
discussing sensitive topic, and students can leave class if they wish.
5-40min Activity: (Either will pick up from where they left off in the STI lesson or begin this class) This g
requires the instructor to make up a set of small cards. The majority of the cards will be blank bu
card will have an I printed on it. Two cards each will have a C, S, and R printed on them
one will have C-D printed on it. Explain that this lesson is designed to teach participants how
avoid getting sexually transmitted infections. Distribute a card to each participant face down,
instructing them not to look at their card. Ask them to stand, find one person in the room and ha
discussion with them on Sex today compared to sex when their parents were young. Shake han
the end of the discussion and sit down. Ask them to stand again, find a different person and hav
discussion on What effect does sex in the media have on people? Shake hands at the end of the
discussion and sit down. Repeat once more discussing Talking to their parents about sex. Sha
hands at the end of the discussion and sit down. Now have the students look at their cards. Ask
person with a I on their card to stand up. This person represents someone with and STI. Now ha
everyone who shook this persons hand stand up. They may also be infected. Repeat this last ste
more times. Identify those who have a C on their card. They may sit because if they did have
intercourse, they used a condom correctly which reduced their risk of getting an STI. The perso
a C-D must remain standing because although they used a condom they did not use it correctly an
broke. Those with an R may sit because they are in a relationship but chose not to be sexually a
Those with an S may sit. They are single and enjoying it! The people standing did not use any
protection and were not in any of the other situations. They may be infected with an STI. Emph
how easily STIs are spread and reinforce the importance of protecting yourself.

- The students will then be asked if their reaction towards their friend contracting HIV/AID
changed or not, if so or not, why?

Conclusion: Once again the students will be reminded how important it is to practice safe sex, as
HIV/AIDS can spread easily if not, and what steps they should take if they get infected, but as w
remind them it is not the end of the world, there should not be a stigma around it, and most impo
stay informed.
