We hope this highly accessible teaching and learning tool will challenge you, engage you, and empower you. By working through the different sections of the website, on your own, with friends or under the direction of your teacher, you will deepen your understanding of the facts about HIV whilst increasing your awareness of its social impact.
This interactive website is a tool to teach young people about HIV, how it affects people here in the UK, how to prevent it spreading and how to reduce the discrimination experienced by those living with HIV. It also provides insights into the global dimension of the epidemic and introduces a series of interactive activities to raise awareness among the new generation and encourage positive, campaigning action to be taken.
It is strongly recommended that you read the TEACHERS' NOTES PDF carefully before teaching about HIV with your students. Included in these are guidelines about how to teach HIV sensitively and suggestions for how to use the resource with your colleagues as well as your students.
Positive? has been designed as a multi-disciplinary resource that can be used for teachers working in Science, English and Media, Citizenship and PSHEE. Teachers’ notes specify which activities relate to which subject area and different routes through the resource are suggested.< BACK
Try the Positive? Challenge, an interactive game putting you in charge of a virtual HIV clinic. If you don’t score very highly the first time, try again after you’ve worked through a few sections of the website.
