Community assessments reveal that one rural community has a high rate of teenage pregnancy. A.V. conducts parenting classes at the local high school and aims to reach first-time expectant parents. Her goal is to provide parents with information about what to expect of a new baby and basic care for the infant.
She realizes that continuity with education may be an issue. Many of her previous classes began with high attendance at the beginning of her 12-week sessions. Over time, interest began to fade, and participation declined. She tries a different approach with the current series of lectures. She reduces the session to 6 weeks and changes the format to one hour of lecture combined with questions and answers, with the second hour consisting of interactive demonstration.
