This book explores the power of educators to serve as HIV and AIDS prevention agents. The definitive text represents the work of a distinguished panel of teacher educators and health scientists who identify core information and skills effective educators of HIV and AIDS prevention should learn as they are prepared to attend to the academic and human needs of students. It assigns to teachers, in the US and abroad, the novel role of prevention agents, given their extraordinary ability to access and affect young people -- to influence their behavior. Humanizing Pedagogy considers the social, economic, racial, gender and other variables that impact the prevention of HIV and AIDS. The authors collectively assert that the process of preventing HIV and AIDS, when it considers historic and social context, can compel educators to serve not only as practitioners of knowledge, but as community agents of health and well being. Attending to HIV and AIDS issues advances the capacity and ability of educators to see and attend to the complete learner. Humanizing Pedagogy is a single volume resource for educators, in the US and abroad, interested in attending to the whole needs of the learner--and saving lives.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Mwangaza Michael-Bandele, Carl Grant, Liane Summerfield and their authors have put together a groundbreaking book designed to help prepare teachers for engagement in HIV and AIDS prevention. This is not some simple how-to-teach manual but a pedagogical manifesto that brings numerous perspectives and multilogical understanding to this global crisis. Humanizing Pedagogy Through HIV and AIDS Prevention will serve as a model for future books on teacher education."
-Joe L. Kincheloe, Canada Research Chair, Faculty of Education, McGill University"This is an amazing treatise of courage and compassion placed directly where it belongs...in the midst of our pedagogy. It reminds us that turning away from a problem does not make it go away."
-Gloria Ladson-Billings, Ph.D., Professor, University of Wisconsin-Madison
President, American Educational Research Association, 2005"This excellent and very interesting collection of essays addresses the scientific, political, sociocultural, religious, economic, and cultural aspects of HIV/AIDS. It makes the case for teachers to think out of the box and know that `temples of betterment'-our schools, which more than 53 million students attend every day-must be about more than teaching the three "R's" (Reading, Riting, and Rithmatic); a fourth must be added for Responsibility. The HIV virus is still with us. Every member of the community has a role to play to prevent it from spreading. Teachers and students must be taught how to assume their role if we hope to build a future without AIDS. The book is a must read for all teachers."
-Dr. M. Joycelyn Elders, M.D., former U.S. Surgeon General
Distinguished Professor of Public Health, University of Arkansas School of Public Health
