Visions: Drug Education for Healthy 21st Century Living. An Infused K-12 Curriculum.
Morton, Claudette, Ed.
This document completes a major goal of the Montana Rural Drug Free Schools Program, the development of an infused drug education curriculum appropriate for Montana's rural and small schools. These materials were first developed as a user-friendly computer program before this print form was produced, and the reader is encouraged to access the computer file through EDUNET. The first section contains lessons for each grade level, K-12. Most grade levels have activities related to communication arts, health enhancement, and guidance; some grades also have art, mathematics, social studies, library, and science activities. The second section includes lessons that can be used for two or more grades and that are integrated into specific subject areas: communication arts, fine arts, health enhancement, mathematics, science, social studies, vocational/practical arts, library/media, and guidance. This section is aimed particularly at rural multigraded schools. In addition to providing actual drug and alcohol education, activities are also intended to build self-esteem; teach coping behaviors; improve decision-making and problem-solving skills; reduce risk-taking behaviors; clarify personal attitudes and values; teach respect for oneself and others; and provide information about health, nutrition, illnesses, and contraception.
