Middle schoolers develop an awareness of the behaviors signaling that a friend may be in trouble with alcohol or drugs of abuse. They practice ways to encourage a friend to seek out adult help by viewing a video, role-playing situations, writing a skit and creating an expressive collage.
Five segements from Ken Burns' documentary series Prohibition, easily accessed on the PBS website, are at the center of a terrific short unit on the roots of America's ambivalent relationship with alcohol. Engage your secondary class with a discussion of proposed government regulation of personal behavior based on several examples provided. Then explore the roots of Prohibition through video excerpts, active listening practice, and an engaging, thought-provoking deliberation activity. A comprehensive resource that includes video note-taking and discussion questions, active listening guidelines, background information about six historic constituent groups that class members role play in the deliberation activity, and a bibliography with other useful resources. Take a weekend off from planning. With a resource as complete as this one; you've got Prohibition covered.
