Key Competencies: Drug and Alcohol Education. Elementary Schools.
Philadelphia School District, PA.
This guide, designed for use with elementary school students, attempts to prevent drug and alcohol abuse among students. The Key Competencies program identifies areas in which addicted children differ from non-addicted: poor self image, an improper sense of values, and a lack of identity. For kindergarten through third grade, strategies are presented to help children understand the dangers of improper use of medicines and household substances. Other activities are offered to help children display their feelings and attitudes about their relationships with adults, understand the effects of alcohol on the body, and become aware that they can maintain themselves. For grades four through six, strategies are presented to make students aware that: (1) any substance taken into the body affects its functions; (2) many things contribute to drug use; (3) people sometimes imagine others do not like them; (4) people are not perfect; (5) drinking alcohol is a problem for many people; and (6) responsibilities grow as people grow.
