DiUlio, Jean; And Others
This guide is designed as a resource for parents and teachers to develop middle school students' critical thinking about mood-altering drugs. It consists of a series of six pamphlets which focus on each of the major types of mood-altering drugs; each pamphlet may be used alone or as part of a series. The teacher's guide contains a short summary of each pamphlet and background information for parents and teachers to use for further explanation and classroom discussion. The six-pamphlet series includes materials on: (1) an introduction to mood-altering drugs; (2) depressants; (3) alcohol; (4) stimulants; (5) hallucinogens; and (6) marijuana. Every pamphlet examines physiology and the effects of drugs on the body, issues related to specific drugs, and the decision-making skills that may be used by middle school students about drugs. (JAC)
