Curriculum: Alcohol and Other Drugs Resource Guide.
This resource guide contains useful information about kindergarten-grade 12 curricula on the prevention of alcohol and other drug use for classroom use. It also cites other relevant publications and organizations. The guide is intended to help teachers, counselors, and other school personnel in their efforts to create a drug-free America. The guide is divided into four major sections. The first section lists prevention materials. For each entry, information is provided on the organization, publication date, format, length, context, topic, mode of delivery, target audience, setting, readability, and availability of the material, as well as a brief description of its content. The second section lists 14 curricula that contain a no-use message; consist of at least 25% alcohol and other drug use prevention material; make clear that the use of illicit drugs is harmful and that young people are responsible for their own decisions; use no illustrations that could teach users how to obtain, prepare, or ingest drugs; are scientifically accurate; are appropriate for the developmental age of students; reflect an understanding of the target group's culture; do not use recovering addicts as role models; are school-based; and are available to the general public. The third section lists eight government publications and journals and three other publications. The final section of the guide lists names, addresses, and telephone numbers of 30 relevant groups, organizations, and programs on curriculum. (NB)
