Educating Adolescents on the Effects of Crack Cocaine on Unborn Children.
Gieche, Ann M.; Bhavnagri, Navaz P.
Ten high-risk, special education adolescents were given an instructional program for five days in health education on crack cocaine and its effects on the fetus. Students included five with learning disabilities, three with emotional impairments, and two with educable mental impairments. All of the subjects live and attend school in a primarily rural area in St. Clair County, Michigan. The instructional intervention included resource persons, role playing, videos, hands-on materials, oral reading, and written assignments. Data collected through evaluation of lesson plans, observation, student-generated products, and pre-post assessment indicated that students increased in overall knowledge of crack cocaine and its effects on the fetus. Appendixes contain intervention goals, schedules, lesson plans, student work samples, and the researcher's diary of observations. (Contains 13 references.) (Author/JDD)
