What Educators Can Do About Cigarette Smoking.
American Association for Health, Physical Education, and Recreation, Washington, DC.
Examples of interesting experiences which have occurred in smoking education programs throughout the country are presented in condensed form to encourage active participation by educators in such programs. These experiences, together with guidelines for creating similar programs, are drawn from a four-year Leadership Development Project on smoking and health education funded by the National Clearinghouse for Smoking and Health and conducted by the American Association for Health, Physical Education and Recreation (AAHPER). The purpose of the project was to develop leadership opportunities at every level of education for individuals responsible for school health programs, to stimulate a higher degree of interdisciplinary and interagency cooperation in the implementation of programs in smoking and health education, and to initiate new programs and improve existing programs in smoking education in schools. Related activities or approaches are enumerated and grouped by chapters: Making a Personal Commitment; Where AAHPER Stands on Smoking and Health; Teacher Training; Organizing a State or Local Conference; Programs Involving Youth in Decision-Making; Getting Commitments From Others; Innovative Programs and New Ideas; Using Local Media to Add Impact; and Where to Turn for Additional Resources.
