Drugs. Social Issues Resources Series.
Goldstein, Eleanor C.; And Others
The Social Issues Resources Series (SIRS) is a set of loose leaf units each of which is addressed to a different social issue. Each unit consists of articles which have been reproduced from newspapers, magazines, journals and government publications representing the prevailing spectrum of opinion, emphasis and complexity. Sixty articles are contained in this unit dating from 1968 to 1972 with the sources ranging from Journal of American Pharmaceutical Association to McCall's. Articles were selected to support a systematic study of the drug issue, using the problem solving approach. Thus, the materials provide descriptions of the symptoms of the problem, examination of different aspects of it, definitions, determination of the scope of the problem, analysis of its causes and possible solutions. A Teacher's Guide accompanies the unit describing some teaching strategies that might be used with this material. Suggestions for evaluations are also made. (FDI)
