Tobacco If You Use...You Lose.
Texas State Dept. of Health, Austin.
This teacher's guide was developed to provide essential information that will enable students to make independent and healthy decisions regarding tobacco use. Each lesson in the guide covers both smoking and smokeless tobacco in an effort to add to the realization that all tobacco products have health risks associated with their use and to dispel the myth that smokeless tobacco is a safe alternative to smoking. The guide is composed of three lessons requiring approximately 30-40 minutes of class time per lesson. Lesson 1 focuses on tobacco products and problems and contains a tobacco fact sheet. Lesson 2, Creating Illusions, looks at advertisements for tobacco products. Lesson 3 helps students to make their own decisions concerning tobacco use and contains sample pressure situations. The guide also contains a pre- and post-test. Smokeless tobacco information resources are included, as are a plan for quitting smokeless tobacco use and a teacher evaluation form. (NB)
