This teaching guide for a tobacco education curriculum at the sixth-grade level is a part of a coordinated K-12 educational support program for reducing smoking. It includes a tobacco curriculum matrix for grades K-12, sample teaching methods, concepts and objectives for grades 4-6, and a resource materials list. The basic instructional concepts for the sixth-grade level focus on helping students: (1) identify immediate and long-term effects of smoking on the body; (2) analyze those factors involved in personal decisions about smoking; (3) recognize the responsibility of the United States government in the production, sale and use of tobacco; and (4) understand that individuals can lead happy and productive lives without smoking. Objectives, teacher information, worksheets, and learning activities for each concept are provided. Additionally, the appendices list the addresses of the New York county units of the American Cancer Society, the American Lung Association, and the American Heart Association. (Author/NRB)
