Doing Drug Education: The Role of the School Teacher.
Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
Enhancing Drug Education in the South was a project conducted by the Southern Regional Education Board in 1971-74. The project held regional conferences that brought together people in the SREB region with State-level responsibility for planning alcohol and drug education programs in an effort to find solutions to common problems such as coordination and program evaluation. SREB convened a task force of eight people with expertise in teaching and in preparing teachers for drug education. The task force first met early in April 1972 to determine what kinds of skills students need to live successfully in a drug-oriented society, and what classroom activities would be most effective in meeting these needs. With this as a basis, the second session, held at the end of April, concentrated on determining the competencies--knowledge, skills, values, and attitudes--needed by a teacher who would carry out the activities. This report reflects the deliberations of two workshops that focused on teacher training for the role of drug educator in schools. The objective of these two sessions was not to design a curriculum or training program, but rather to determine what competencies a teacher needs to serve as an effective drug educator. Furthermore, the task force defined "drug educator" as a role that any teacher might assume, whether his primary assignment be English, social studies, science, or health. (Author/HMV)
