Annotation: This document familiarizes educators with a variety of print and audiovisual materials to be used for teaching children and adolescents about drugs (including alcohol and tobacco).
Abstract: The directory is organized into the following additional modules: Primary Resources (for Kindergarten to Grade 3); Junior Resources (for Grades 4-6); Intermediate Resources (for Grades 7-10); and Senior Resources (for Grades 11 to the end of secondary school). The modules stand on their own; however, this module may be used as a companion to each of the other resource modules. Films and videotapes listed have been reviewed and recommended for purchase. Each film has been evaluated and assigned a rating on a 6-point scale based on scientific accuracy, emotional and visual impact, usefulness to the target audience, and effectiveness in assisting people with alcohol and other drug-related decisions. The pamphlets, curricula, teaching kits, and other classroom resources have generally not been evaluated. See NCJ-123195-98 for additional resource directories. Index.
