A Guide to Curriculum Planning in Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Programs. Bulletin No. 92420.
Wisconsin State Dept. of Public Instruction, Madison.
Within the framework of the Wisconsin Model for a Comprehensive K-12 Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse (AODA) Program, this curriculum guide is designed to help students develop information and personal, interpersonal, and social system competencies as they explore fundamental principles related to alcohol and other drug abuse. The guide begins by laying a foundation of assumptions about the nature of learning in general and of learning about alcohol and other drugs in particular. It then presents sample lessons, student activities, and journal writing suggestions that reflect those assumptions. The guide outlines a method of developing and delivering an AODA curriculum designed to help educators think about their beliefs and assumptions concerning AODA education; communicates goals and competencies; illustrates fundamental principles and corresponding content areas as well as related student outcomes; provides an alternative method of developing and delivering AODA instruction; suggests a method of curriculum implementation; describes methods of integrating AODA instruction with other AODA program components and K-12 subject areas; and provides resources for curriculum development and implementation. Twenty-five appendices comprising half the document include: (1) hints for teachers on how to work with students in groups, promote critical reading and thinking, and assess student achievement; (2) a curriculum matrix for grades K-1, 2-4, 5-8, and 9-12; (3) Wisconsin Statutes and Administrative Rules that affect AODA programs; (4) a list of printed resources and state and national organizations concerned with substance abuse; (5) a list of 31 publications, 16 media products, 15 newsletters, and 5 associations on critical thinking; and (6) a list of local and state organizations concerned with educational equity.
