Alcohol and Alcohol Safety: A Curriculum Manual for Elementary Level. Volume I of II.
Finn, Peter; Platt, Judith
This manual is the first in a series of Alcohol and Alcohol Safety Curriculum Manuals for use by teachers and curriculum developers. Geared to the elementary grade level, the objective of the manual is to promote responsible present and future decisions about alcohol. Emphasis has been placed on driver and pedestrian safety in recognition of the significance of the problem and of the fact that attitudes toward drinking-driving behavior are often developed as early as the elementary level. The manual can be used in three different ways: 1) as an aid to teachers in developing their own tailor-made curriculum outlines by applying the curriculum development process to the curriculum index and activities provided in the manual; 2) as a means for schools, state departments of education, health agencies, or private education companies to conduct community workshops; and 3) as a guide to treating specific alcohol topics in depth. To cover varied student concerns, teaching styles, grade level, and time constraints, the manual presents over 100 detailed classroom activities designed to achieve a variety of objectives covering all the major areas of alcohol and alcohol safety. (See CG 007 775 and CG 007 776). (Author/SES)
