Guidelines for Planning and Conducting Student Awareness Programs.
Flanders, Madonna; Spang, Bruce P.
This guide is intended to aid school systems to help students, as members of a group, recognize the effects of chemical dependency on themselves and their peers through student awareness programs. After the introduction, a section on identifying outcomes deals with setting realistic expectations for a student awareness program. The need for gaining administrative and student support is discussed. Suggestions are then made to aid the planning committee, including possible group standards to consider and actual tasks associated with program preparation. Format issues are discussed, with recommendations for small group facilitator training and the use of expert presenters from outside of the school. Sensitivity to home situations and providing opportunities for students to talk outside the group situation are dealt with. The remainder of the booklet provides information on setting up the content of a student awareness program. Goal statements are arranged in order of priority along with an indication of the approximate time needed for each goal. Statements of objectives and content outlines are provided for each goal statement. Activities and resources are broken down and described separately for grades 7-8, 9-10, and 11-12. A sample agenda shows the flow of activities for each day of a typical awareness program. (LLL)
