We want to know: What drug abuse prevention content and lessons are you using?
Are you an English language arts teacher at any grade level who incorporates lessons about resiliency and drug abuse and prevention into your literary curriculum? If so, we want to hear your story.
As we continue to promote drug prevention education across the state, the Ohio Department of Education is looking for teachers whose work in this area could benefit other English language arts educators. For elementary students, drug prevention content tied to literary texts typically would focus on building resiliency and making positive life choices. For middle and high school students, content would center on drug abuse and prevention.
The Department is interested to learn and share the texts you have found effective, the types of lessons you have created and the resources that may have pointed you in the right direction. We also would like to know if you’ve found your efforts to spark classroom discussion effective — and anything else you think is important to share.
