Dear Teacher/Facilitator of Choosing the Best JOURNEY,

Choosing the Best JOURNEYThere has been a recent medical update that needs to be incorporated into your teaching of Choosing the Best JOURNEY. Choosing the Best JOURNEY has been reviewed by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families, and found to be medically accurate with this modification, outlined below:

Student Manual/Leader Guide

1) On page 29, in the fourth paragraph of the HPV section, please add the following information about the availability of an HPV vaccine that was recently developed for males:

“Males are now also eligible for the HPV vaccine.”

Please also note this important information about using endnotes in all Choosing the Best curricula:

Student Manuals

All references for material contained in the Choosing the BestStudent Manuals are contained in endnotes at the back of the Student Manual.

Leader Guides

All references for material contained in “wrap around text” (the text that flows around the embedded corresponding Student Manual page) of the Leader Guides are contained in endnotes at the back of the Leader Guide. Because there is additional information provided in the Leader’s Guide that is not in the Student Manual, the number and ordering of the endnotes in each of these books is slightly different. So if you are using the Leader Guide but referencing information that is actually from the Student Manual (even in the embedded Student Manual pages from the Leader Guide), you must go to the back of the actual Student Manual to get the correct reference.
