Changing Channels. Teacher's Guide.
Adler, C. Ralph; Dwyer, M. Christine
The activities in this teacher's manual are designed to help challenge the notion that adolescents think the use of alcohol is part of the growing up experience. It is geared towards activities with middle school students that reinforce to students that they have the potential to control their own lives and make healthy choices. It suggests classroom activities for the anti-alcohol related issues raised in a 23-minute video. The messages concern relationships; image; belief systems; friendships; and feeling grown up. The interactions of the five middle school students featured in the video are reviewed. The activities are designed to encourage student participation. (Author/JDM)
