Educating Students about Drug Use and Mental Health


Activity 5: Using Strategies to Manage Substance Use and Abuse

Teaching/Learning Strategy 5:
In small groups, using a visual organizer (e.g., web, diagram, map), students will brainstorm factors that influence their attitudes toward alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. The list could include: cultural beliefs and values, individual life circumstances, parental and family influences, influences of peers, religion, availability, finances, heredity etc. Each group will rank their results from the group to arrive at a ranking for the class.
