Project Prevention - A Curriculum Specifically Designed To Prevent Illegal Drug Use among Students with Disabilties: Secondary.
Devlin, Sandy; And Others
The Project Prevention curriculum is specifically designed for the prevention of substance abuse among students with disabilities and was piloted in 10 classrooms serving students with mild, moderate, and severe disabilities. This component of the curriculum is intended for secondary students and includes four sections with a total of 67 lesson plans which address: (1) self-esteem; (2) social skills; (3) decision making; and (4) drug awareness. Although the activities are designed to be implemented in sequential order, a teacher can also use individual activities which best suit the students involved. Information provided for each activity includes recommended time allotment, needed materials, procedures, and worksheets or handouts. Examples of activities include: becoming more aware of emotions and ways to maintain self-control, understanding friendship, identifying personal values, asserting oneself, and learning about marijuana and its effects on the body. A glossary defines terms that may be unfamiliar to students. (Contains 15 references.) (DB)
