Synopsis

Simon's Story by

To the Teacher Use this story for life skils, health or cultural studies lessons, or as reader in English class. The following key concepts are dealt with: * Grief brings overwhelming feelings. * It is all right to have these feelings * Adults can help children by acknowledging these feelings. * When you are suffering grief, it helps to let your feelings out and cry. * It is important to have memories of people who have died and to go back to them. * It takes time, but the sadness does get better eventually. * It is all right to have fun even when you are grieving. Young adults are more vulnerable to HIV/AIDS than anyone else. We should encourage children to develope self-respect and respect for others from an early age. This is one of the JAWS HIV/AIDS readers developed for primary school learners.The story conveys the subtle psycho-social dimensions of the pandemic affecting learners' lives (personal and social developement). It can be used as a reader, or to help teachers introduce subject matter that is difficult to manage in the classroom.
