The target population included Grade 6 students in South Texas.
Those students selected through computer assignment for the traditional sixth grade classes were placed into a 90-minute class of Grade 6 or Algebra-Prep mathematics.
It is further recommended that the Grade 6 integrated mathematics/science classes be scheduled during a subsequent time period utilizing one teacher for both subjects allowing for easier implementation of the integration of the mathematics and science standards-based curriculum.
The teacher is told that, at the grade 6 level, when children are about 11 years old, the subject of homosexuality will likely come up.
Yet, in this manual children are taught at the grade 6 level that the HIV virus is contracted through sexual intercourse.
In the "call to action" box for grade 6, the teacher is asked to instruct students to create posters for AIDS Awareness Week and World AIDS Awareness Day and possibly participate in "community organized events" planned for these dates.
