The long-range goal of any chemical health instructional program is to reduce the incidence of risk-taking behavior among students by developing and reinforcing resistance skills. School districts should therefore develop or select a curriculum that can best facilitate skill development among their unique student populations. The purpose of this document is to provide local New Jersey school districts with an evaluation of the major K-12 commercial alcohol and other drug curricula available at present. The guide is divided into grade levels: elementary (i.e., programs for K-6 and also for K-12); junior high school (programs for grades 7, 8, 9); and high school (programs for grades 10, 11, and 12). Program descriptions include in each case title, author, publisher and edition data, as well as a brief overview, a note on special features and comments. A sample of the checklist which was used to review the curricula is included. Appendices include: general guidelines for program evaluation; publisher information; and the scope and sequence of the New Jersey State Department of Education's objectives with regard to chemical health education.
