  • The Process (Teacher) Slide Two [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page This lesson is organized into three parts: 1. “Before you begin” 2. Research 3. Public awareness campaign The project will involve 2-3 class periods to allow for the collaboration needed. It is interdisciplinary between research methods and health. As the teacher, it is up to your discretion how students should be divided into groups. I would suggest groups of 3-4 students who work well together. Remember: You know your students the best, so set them up with success! Skills: To complete this lesson, you will need a good understanding of the recreational drugs that your students will be researching so that you can evaluate the accuracy of the information. Also, classroom management will be important. Keeping students on task while working in groups is always a challenge. Location, Location, Location: This lesson should be completed in a computer lab so that each student can have access to the internet and computer programs. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion

    Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
  • Teacher Script (Teacher) [ Student Page ] Title Introduction Learners Standards Process Resources Credits Teacher Page Prior to this lesson, a review of internet and library research might be necessary to get the students started. Beyond that, there is little work that needs to be done to prepare the students for this task. This lesson is a self-directed project. They will research the information needed. Your role is to be available to answer questions. Please refer to the Process segment to obtain step-by-step instructions. Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion
