Alcohol and Alcohol Safety: A Curriculum Manual for Junior High Level. Volume I of II.
Finn, Peter; Platt, Judith
This manual is the second in a series of Alcohol and Alcohol Safety Curriculum Manuals for use by primary and secondary school teachers and curriculum developers. It is geared to the junior high level, grades seven through nine. The objective of the manual is to promote responsible decisions about alcohol use that leads to responsible behaviors with regard to alcohol use. Emphasis has been placed on driver and pedestrian safety, since drinking alcohol often begins in junior high school at the same time as students begin to anxiously await getting their driver's permit or license. The manual can be used in a number of ways: teachers and school departments can use the manual to develop their own curriculum outlines; schools, state departments of education, and health agencies can use the manual to conduct community workshops; the manual can be adapted to treat specific alcohol topics in depth. The collection of over 200 detailed classroom activities for grades seven through nine are designed to achieve a variety of objectives. For other documents in this series see ED 072382 and ED 072 383. (Author/SES)
