A small group of educators, curators, librarians, and others have worked together to develop a curriculum guide and resource that will help teachers and educators work with the AIDS posters on this site to teach in a variety of areas. These lesson plans, teaching prompts, and other resources are geared towards 9-12 grade students, as well as undergraduates, but can be adapted for lifelong learners and others. This curriculum guide will continue to grow over time, and new resources will be added as they are developed.

This curriculum guide is seen as a starting point for those interested in teaching with the posters, or using posters are teaching tools. Anyone interested in assistance with teaching with the posters, or if you wish to have the curator of the collection work with you or teach a session with the posters, please contact us.

Background:

This curriculum guide is a product of over a decade of teaching with these posters in an array of disciplines and with a broad range of students and learners. The entire collection of posters is online and searchable, and can be used itself as a teaching tool. Warning: There are many very graphic images in this collection and they may not be suitable for all audiences. Pre-identifying posters for sample lesson plans and prompts will alleviate some of those issues, and it may not be advisable to provide the link to the entire collection to younger students for open searching.
