Common Core Standards:

Analyze how the author unfolds an analysis or series of ideas or events, including the order in which the points are made, how they are introduced and developed, and the connections that are drawn between them.


Analyze various accounts of a subject told in different mediums (e.g., a person's life story in both print and multimedia), determining which details are emphasized in each account.

You will be able to analyze how authors unfold a series of reporting on HIV prevention methods in multiple cities in order to create a resource addressing an HIV prevention method that could support reducing HIV in your own communities.

Warm up:

  1. Make a list of things you know to be true about HIV. Consider the following as you make your list:
  • How does someone contract HIV?
  • What does HIV do to the body if it is not treated?
  • What is the difference between HIV and Aids?
  • How can someone prevent getting HIV?
  • What treatments are available for someone with HIV?
  1. According to UNAIDS, 35.6 million people in the world were living with HIV at the end of 2015. What countries do you think have the largest prevalence of HIV? Click here to check your answer.
  • Additional Challenge: Research the prevalence of HIV in your own community.

  1. According to the same UNAIDS report, new HIV infections have fallen 6% since 2010. Make a list of reasons you think the rate of HIV infections has fallen.
  2. The first cases of HIV were documented in the mid-1980s. Why do you think that HIV continues to thrive around the world? Who do you think is most affected, and why? Make a list of reasons, and be prepared to share your responses with the class.

Introducing the Lesson:

Today’s lesson investigates resources that are part of the reporting project “Ending AIDS” by journalists William Brangham, Jon Cohen and Jason Kane. The project analyzes efforts being made to combat the spread of HIV in communities all over the world. 

Introducing the Resources:

Today,  you will investigate efforts in San Francisco, Georgia, New York,  Rwanda, and South Africa to prevent the spread of HIV. As you review the following resources, analyze how the authors balanced interviews, facts and images to report their stories by doing the following:
  1. Answer the comprehension questions that accompany each resource.
  2. Use a table like the one below to track what you notice in each piece:
