Guidelines for Tobacco Use Prevention Programs in Minnesota Schools.
Minnesota Curriculum Services Center, White Bear Lake.
In 1985 the Minnesota Legislature passed legislation providing funds to local school districts for planning, implementing, and evaluating comprehensive tobacco use prevention programs. (A copy of the legislation is included in the Appendix.) The purpose of this document is to assist local school districts in planning effective K-12 curricula for tobacco use prevention. Specifically, the document assists districts in: (1) evaluating the status of current tobacco education curricula; (2) writing or revising the tobacco use prevention component of their health or chemical health curriculum to meet state criteria and improve effectiveness; and (3) evaluating and selecting available tobacco use prevention programs for incorporation into the district curriculum. The first section of the guidelines covers the topics: "Why Is Tobacco Use Prevention Important?"; "Can Classroom Education Alone Prevent Young People from Using Tobacco?"; and "A Comprehensive Approach to Tobacco Use Prevention." The second section outlines "Guidelines for a K-12 Curriculum Including Learner Outcomes, Strategies and Methods." (IAH)
