You are the Target. Big Tobacco: Lies, Scams--Now the Truth [and] Project Moving Target: Don't Be Sucked In by Tobacco.
This workbook presents a two-tiered strategy designed to enable mid to senior high school students to become Tobacco Awareness Peer Mentors, and to talk to fourth and fifth grade students about their personal experiences with tobacco and what they have read for themselves in actual tobacco documents. Each of the five units in the workbook includes tobacco documents and/or advertisements with companion exercises/worksheets. Each unit allows for up to 50 minutes of class time and teachers have discretion and flexibility to select age and ability appropriate material where applicable. In addition to document review, components of this training include de-briefing for family and peer-related tobacco issues, group discussion about suggested approaches for presentation to younger children and written reflection by participants on all aspects of their voluntary mandate--especially feedback from those who are, or are in the process of becoming ex-smokers.
