The skills enumerated in the previous chapter are vital to helping students protect themselves from the dangers of AIDS contracted through high-risk sex or drug use. However, as we have seen, simply listing the skills or posting them on the classroom bulletin board will accomplish very little toward convincing students to embrace these skills and incorporate them into their lives. Students must instead be trained in how to employ these skills so that using them becomes second nature. Teachers and students must demonstrate the correct use of these skills for each other in realistic scenes based on anecdotes or even created from whole cloth. After proper use of the skills has been demonstrated, or modeled, for them, all students must be provided with the opportunity to rigorously practice implementing the skills through monitored role-play assignments. This chapter will provide teachers with structured methods and plot lines for effective modeling. Role-playing and other teaching strategies will be discussed in the next chapter.
