Activities for Drug Education in Years 9 and 10.
Tasmanian Education Dept., Hobart (Australia).
This handbook on drug education is written for teachers of students in the 9th and 10th grades. It is based on the philosophy that drug education requires a special kind of classroom climate and a classroom management style in which the teacher is not an instructor or expert, but a facilitator. The booklet helps teachers to understand why and how a deliberate strategy of building an effective classroom climate can lead to drug education that will help students live effectively in a drug-taking society. The approach recommended is a blend of self-esteem activities and personal and social skill development. Class activities are presented which enable students to explore attitudes and values, develop personal and interpersonal skills, and practice behaviors in a range of situations appropriate for midadolescents.
