SCOPE School receives pregnancy The Sussex County Opportunity Program in Education (SCOPE) has recently been awarded a $10,000 grant for pregnancy pre- vention from MBNA. The grant was written by Shannon Speicher, Rachel Burwell and Liz Cahill. The school serves an at-risk popu- lation in adolescents in Sussex County, with students in grades six to 12. The Pregnancy Prevention pro- gram was designed by Speicher, who teaches physical education and health. The curriculum will address most aspects of sex edu- cation and childbirth. Twoof the more interesting instructional tools of the program are the empa- thy bellies and the lifelike babies. prevention grant The empathy belly is worn to show the different stages of preg- nancy. The students will experi- ence the 'feel' of being pregnancy at approximately four, six and nine months by actually wearing the empathy belly during school. The lifelike babies used in the program are computerized and simulate most behaviors of a new- born. The 'new' mom or dad will have to determine why his or her baby is crying and interact with the child to satisfy its needs. The program will be ongoing and will be taught throughout the year as new students enter into the school. The school staff is excited about the program and grateful to MBNA for its support.
