Saying No: Drug Abuse Prevention Ideas for the Classroom.
Pacificon Productions, San Francisco, CA.
This booklet is designed to provide drug abuse prevention ideas for the classroom junior high school teacher. The information, activities and resources address the education portion of the prevention continuum defined by the National Institute of Drug Abuse, i.e., information, education, intervention, alternatives. This guide includes research findings that have direct implications for the prevention-oriented teacher, specific prevention activities which can be incorporated into already existing curricula, and a list of resources for additional information and ideas about prevention and the role of the classroom teacher. The activities concentrate on the development of decision-making skills, goal orientation, values awareness, personal motivation, and the development of interpersonal communication skills. Time required, objectives, and methods are listed for each activity, which is appropriate for a variety of skill development levels and in many subject areas. References, curricula, and training opportunities in the resources section also span grade levels and subjects. (Author/NRB)
