Suggested Curriculum Drug Abuse Education.
Cooperative Educational Service Agency 8, Appleton, WI.
This extensive, coded curriculum guide is based on the premise that a "people problem," not a "drug problem," exists in our schools. Activities are arranged so classroom interaction can take place with minimal teacher control. To help the teacher in his role, a booklet on group communication exercises has been prepared that can be used in coordinating these class activities. A communication exercises which this staff felt would be appropriate for use in conjunction with a particular learning activity is suggested in the course study but need not be followed. Each teacher can best judge his or her own situation and is better prepared to make an appropriate choice of exercise. Not all of the classroom activities have accompanying communication exercise suggestions. Hopefully, as a teacher becomes more relaxed in his role he will begin to incorporate some of his own ideas into exercises. This drug education program spans all grade levels from the primary grades through the late adolescent years, and stresses not only drug information, but personal health, self-awareness, trust and respect.
