Lessons from the Street: An Introduction to Drug Education
Janowiak, John
American Journal of Health Education, v40 n6 p378-381 Nov-Dec 2009
The instructional approach used in this teaching idea involves high-level cognitive and affective learning rather than passive learning through lecture, which often is the traditional, and ineffective, approach for students being educated about drugs. Objectives: At the conclusion of this drug education teaching strategy, students will be able to: (1) form opinions based on fact, (2) draw logical conclusions regarding legal and illegal drugs of abuse, (3) categorize drug samples into pharmacological groups, and (4) discuss the laws, availability and abuse of licit and illicit drugs. Target Audience: Middle school and high school students. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
