Synopsis

Caribbean HIV/AIDS Readers Breaking the Silence (Level 2) by Jenny Robson

Caribbean HIV * AIDS Readers aim to promote good health practice through extensive reading. This important series of readers is designed to help young people to develop the knowledge, attitudes, self-esteem, and skills needed to manage their relationships safely and happily, and to cope better with the crisis of HIV and AIDS which is affecting all our communities today. The stories are affirming and empowering for young readers as they portray a variety of strong believable characters who are finding ways to make choices in adversity and take control of their lives. Caribbean HIV * AIDS Readers can be used across the curriculum: in literacy, social studies, life skills and science classes as well as in after-school or community clubs. The readers are at three levels. Within each level there is some development in reading levels and language is controlled. The issues are dealt with in a straightforward way with respect for individual and cultural values. Level 1 includes simple stories that encourage good relationships, and prepare children to protect themselves and understand how their bodies fight disease. In Levels 2 and 3, stories about different aspects of HIV and AIDS are presented with factual information and activities for children. Factual readers provide important and interesting information. A young teacher is sick in hospital. She decides to write letters to her students telling them the cause of her illness and warning them about HIV and AIDS. Sadly, when her mother and brother are given the letters to post they burn them instead to keep the silence.
