Explanation of Icons & Symbols

The following icons are used in the curriculum to help guide users through the materials:

Icon Description
This icon indicates the beginning of a new lecture topic.
This icon highlights a Learning Activity. When users see this icon, they should remember that this is an opportunity for breaking the audience into smaller discussion groups to process some of the information that has been covered during the training.
This icon signals a question that the trainer might pose to the audience for consideration. In most instances, the questions are a follow–up to the lecture content. In a few places in the curriculum, the questions are presented as an alternative to lecture.

Other useful symbols include:

Use Slide #: This notation appears in the Teaching Notes alongside the relevant Lecture Content text. The vast majority of the slides do not introduce any new information. Instead, they are designed to reinforce key teaching points made by the trainer. The slides are included in the curriculum in PowerPoint so that they can be downloaded and used with an LCD projector, or printed out and copied onto transparencies. The slides can also be printed as handouts and distributed to participants.

Refer to Handout: This notation is used to refer to all types of handouts, including exercises, policy and practice briefs, and other relevant resources. The handouts included in the curriculum can be printed out, duplicated, and distributed to participants during the training. Users of this curriculum are encouraged to provide packets of materials (including the training goals and agenda) to all participants.
