Using Media Resources to Explore Drug Use in Society: A Special 5th Grade Drug Education Lesson That Makes Use of Library Media Resources.
Packer, Kenneth L.; And Others
This teaching guide, written for elementary school teachers and librarians, combines drug education for fifth grade students with library skill development. Following a preface to the guide, the affective model upon which the program is based (development of positive self-image and self-concept, and communication and coping skills) is presented. The learning objectives of each category, library media skills and drug education, are listed. Definitions of terms (drug, drug abuse, and drug use) are given, as well as parent notification information. Student testing and program evaluation methods are discussed. Forms for student pre- and post-tests and student evaluation of library materials are included. Ten activities which correspond to five general learning concepts (i.e., identifying and classifying advertising techniques; advertising and buying habits; drug use in society; fables and tall tales; and communication through a multi-media presentation) are described. A professionally compiled bibliography emphasizing background readings, curriculum guides, and curriculum integration, and a student compiled bibliography emphasizing health knowledge, advertising, attitudes, problem solving, literature appreciation, and song lyrics are included. Two appendices, one dealing with analysis of advertisements and script writing, and the other with program planning for video productions conclude the document. (BL)
