Application of the PRECEDE Model to a School-Based Program of Drug, Alcohol and Tobacco Education.
Lipnickey, Susan Cross
The PRECEDE model, a conceptual model of comprehensive program development and implementation for health education, was used as a framework for a school-based drug (including alcohol and tobacco) education program specific to each individual classroom teacher's situation. A dual-purpose workshop was held for elementary and secondary school teachers which enabled participants to increase their knowledge of drugs and to understand the concepts of the PRECEDE model and their application within the school health program. A qualitative assessment was used to evaluate the workshop. Participants completed an open-ended workshop evaluation on the last day of the workshop and again one year later. The results indicated that the update on content was helpful, that the opportunity to work through a program was both helpful and difficult, and that participants felt that similar workshops should be required of all teachers. Recommendations for a follow-up study include the development of: (1) a knowledge pretest/posttest; (2) a standard knowledge, attitude, and behavior instrument for students; and (3) a systematic means of evaluating use of the PRECEDE model. (Figures are included which illustrate the PRECEDE model and working through the PRECEDE model, and provide a workshop content outline.) (NB)
