Straight Talk about Risks: A Pre-K-12 Curriculum for Preventing Gun Violence. Grades 6-12.
Center To Prevent Handgun Violence, Washington, DC.
Straight Talk about Risks (STAR) is a pre-kindergarten through grade 12 curriculum designed to reduce the potential for children and teens to be injured or killed in gunfire. STAR is based on sound prevention practice developed from a pilot project in Dade County (Florida). The flexible format allows activities to fit into a 3-week classroom unit or be taught over a number of weeks. Parents are a vital link to reduce gun violence among children and teens, and their involvement is integral to STAR. This curriculum guide for grades 6 through 12 contains the following sections: (1) "Before You Begin--Orientation"; (2) "Suggestions for Parent and Community Involvement"; (3) "Activity Plans and Bibliography for Middle and Junior High School Students, Grades 6-8"; (4) "Activity Plans and Bibliography for Senior High School Students, Grades 9-12"; (5) "Academic Bibliography for Educators and Parents"; and (6) "National Directory of Violence Prevention Resources." Included are 114 annotated bibliography items and 73 non-annotated bibliography items. (SLD)
