Drugs, Alcohol, Tobacco, and Human Behavior: Teacher Manual, Junior High School, and Student Book, Junior High School.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus.
A causal approach to human behavior (in this case, substance usage) has been adopted. This framework views each individual as having personality tasks, such as achieving self-respect or emotional security or dealing with sex feelings, which must be worked out. If a person meets barriers while trying to work them out, he may attempt to remove them in temporary and ineffective ways, one of which may be the use of drugs, alcohol, and/or tobacco. Both the student and the teacher's manual for this educational program are included. Behaviorally specific objectives are defined throughout. In general, the program objectives are: 1) to teach what drugs exist; 2) to teach their effects on the human organism; and 3) to show how they fit in with alternative ways for meeting personality tasks. For the teacher, an abundance of references, materials and learning activities are suggested. (TL)
