Human-Persons and the Use of Psychoactive Agents; A Drug Education Curriculum for Modern Youth.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus.
These two manuals, student's and teacher's, present information to stimulate both dialogue and problem-solving activity on drugs and drug education within the classroom. With a focus on human interaction, the five units include an introduction, a section about people, one about drugs, a section on effects and consequences of drug abuse, and a section selecting ways of meeting daily situations. Making use of RAP sheets to provide information needed to initiate discussion, the "program" is founded on five assumptions: (1) that behavior is caused; (2) that these causes can be discovered and understood; (3) that understanding the causes of drug abuse and gaining insight into the consequences of such behavior upon others and oneself will help the individual select those behaviors of greatest benefit to himself and others; (4) that a search for understanding the dynamics of human behavior should benefit a large segment of the school population, and (5) that the by-products of such a program will be beneficial and create a more fully functioning, autonomous individual.
