This lesson will challenge students to increase their awareness of STIs. Students will begin with a Truth vs. Myth exercise, then they will discuss the causes and effects of STIs. After that, students will learn some basic terms and background information on STIs, followed by a chance to do their own research on STIs, focusing especially on physical, mental, and social effects (both short-term symptoms and long term risks). Finally, students will complete a homework assignment with clinical scenarios. This lesson could also be flipped, so that the research is done outside of class for homework in preparation of the lesson and the scenarios are completed in class.
