Classroom Activity

Initiative Description: A program addressing teenage pregnancy using role-playing. Each of the role plays was presented in the classroom by student volunteers and was observed by their peers. The skills depicted by the characters in the role play could, we thought, enhance the learners’ own self-efficacy to implement safe sexual behavior.

Study Results: Improved self-efficacy for safe sex practices and knowledge.
