"Not for Me!" An Educ-Coloring Book and Teacher's Guide.
Chernow, Fred; Chernow, Carol
"Not for Me!" presents a novel approach to drug abuse prevention. The time-tested vehicle of the coloring book is used along with a carefully-worded caption on each of its thirty-one pages. Both the caption and naturalistic art work are geared to saying "No!" to drugs. The detailed Teacher's Guide provides the classroom teacher or concerned parent with a complete Lesson Plan for each page in the Edu-Coloring Book. The classroom-tested Guide provides the teacher with a comprehensive outline to accompany each page of the book. These learning aids are: Aim of the Lesson, Vocabulary, Materials, Motivation, Picture Study, Teacher Questions, Follow-up Activities, and Related Reading. Other features of the Guide include methods of correlating traditional school subjects to drug prevention. References are made to Science, Social Studies, Math, Hygiene, and Writing Skills. Related readings are listed for each page to expand both the teacher's and pupil's knowledge. A list of current audio-visual materials is included to help teachers further vitalize the topics covered. Complete step-by-step directions to the teacher are included. Cover materials provide the reader with free and inexpensive teaching material sources, toll-free 800 telephone numbers for direct help, and a ten-step Parent's Guide on how to help their child say "No" to drugs.
