Middle School Drug Awareness/Health Awareness Program: "Choose Not To Use for a Healthier You."
Wilson, Gwen E.
According to the U.S. Departments of Health and Human Services and Education, the main elements of a drug-free education program should focus on valuing and maintaining sound personal health; respecting laws and rules prohibiting drugs; resisting pressures toward drug use; and promoting student activities that are drug-free and offer healthy avenues for student interest. This paper describes one such program which involves a planned month-long program of activities for students at the middle school level. Program elements are planned to complement daily school objectives and include curriculum related activities, drug/health related presentations and contests, and a health fair. Suggested activities are provided for each area of the school's curriculum, and a variety of lessons have been written for curriculum area including: English; history; mathematics; reading; science; art; band, choir, and music; computer technology; drama, speech, theater arts; foreign language; health; homemaking, life management skills; industrial technology; physical education; resource areas and special education; English as a Second Language (ESL); advisory; and clubs, groups, and sports teams. An outline for contests and for special programs in AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) awareness is also included. (ND)
