Aids to teaching

AT THE START of a new academic year' many teachers are faced with the problem of devising interesting and informative courses for "General Studies" lessons and the like. In many schools, personal relationships form a key part of such courses.

But teaching about the subject is not easy. That is what lay behind the Catholic Marriage Advisory Council's decision three years ago to set up a "Service for Teachers".

The service is designed to make available to teachers the experience of CMAC counsellors, who regularly visit schools to talk with pupils about sex, love, and marriage.

It seeks to bear witness to the belief that sexuality is basically a gift from God, despite the distortions, exploitation and abuses that undoubtedly exist. Among the aids offered are: • Curriculum information, built up from the experience of teachers involved in "Education for Living" courses.

• A resource list, detailing books, Films, tapes, slides, etc, which provide useful classroom material. (price 50p).

• Display of teaching resources, which can be examined at the service's headquarters in Lansdowne Road, London, W11.

• Lesson notes on family planning, geared particularly for 15 to 16 year olds. (price 75p).

• Correspondence service for teachers with problems in devising "Education for Living" courses.

Details of all these can be got by writing to Margaret Grimer, "Service for Teachers," 15 Lansdowne Road, London, WII — Tel. 01-727 0141.
