Drugs and Drug Abuse: Alcohol, Tobacco, and Controlled Dangerous Substances (A Supplement to the Course of Study for Science, Grade 7). Bulletin No. 278; [and] Bibliography and Teacher Packet, Bulletin No. 278-A.
Montgomery County Public Schools, Rockville, MD.
The primary bulletin outlines a teaching program for seventh-grade students on drugs and drug abuse, and is designed to supplement the school science curriculum. The program is directed towards providing factual information about various drugs and appropriate techniques that the teacher needs. It also provides appropriate learning experiences for the student. Stress is placed on the physical nature of the drugs and their physiological effects on the human body. It is hoped that this approach will ensure that students will become aware of the effects of drug abuse on the individual, his family, his community and society as a whole. Suggestions are offered as to potential community resources that could be utilized as consultants and guest speakers. The guide is organized into two sections for each drug: a teacher information section and a teaching unit. The supplementary bulletin contains a bibliography of drug literature, tests for students, tables of drug characteristics, slang and technical terms, drug abuse symptoms, and Maryland laws on drug abuse.
