Abstract:

PHASE I PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A PRENATAL EDUCATION TEACHING AID SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED TO ADDRESS THE UNIQUE NEEDS, BOTH COGNITIVE AND AFFECTIVE, OF THE PREGNANT ADOLESCENT. IT WILL BE SELF-MOTIVATIONAL AND APPROPRIATE FOR THOSE WHO MAY BE GENERALLY LACKING IN EDUCATION. SUCCESS WITH IT SHOULD BE REPRODUCIBLE IN SUBGROUPS OF THE TARGET POPULATION. MORE SPECIFICALLY, 1. IS FUN TO USE WHILE LEARNING, 2. IS USEFUL IN INSTITUTIONAL SETTINGS 3. IS VERSATILE ENOUGH TO USE WITH OR WITHOUT AN INSTRUCTOR, AND TO CREATE AWARENESS IN NONPREGNANT TEENS. PRETESTS AND POST-TESTS WILL BE GIVEN TO CONTROL AND EXPERIMENTAL GROUPS ATTENDING PRENATAL CLASSES TO DETERMINE LEARNING CURVE. IT IS EXPECTED THAT THE TEST SCORES WILL IMPROVE BY THE USE OF A TEACHING AID DESIGNED ESPECIALLY FOR THE NEEDS, METHODS, AND LEVELS OF LEARNING OF TEENS. PHASE II WOULD REPRODUCE THIS TEACHING AID SO AS TO INVOLVE A LARGER NUMBER OF HEALTH EDUCATORS AND PARTICIPANTS TO FURTHER ESTABLISH THE VALIDITY OF THE TEACHING AID. IT WOULD BE IMPORTANT ALSO TO DO FOLLOWUP STUDIES OF THE PARTICIPANTS TO SEE IF KNOWLEDGE SERVES TO CHANGE THE BEHAVIOR.
