Lesson Plan

Teens Teaching Teens

Students will be responsible for researching and then, from their research present their information to the rest of the class. Students will teach at least one class on their topic. You should have between 13 and 20 slides in your power-point presentation.

  • You will work in groups of 2 or 3 and you may choose your own work mates but remember your presentation is one grade for the group. 
  • You will be evaluated each day by the instructor who will use the following rubric:
    • 0 - accomplished nothing; 
    • 1 - little work accomplished; 
    • 2 - was on task at least ¾ of the time; 
    • 3 - worked all block with few distractions; and 
    • 4 - worked all block with no distractions. 

The topics you will get to choose from are: CAFFEINE, COCAINE/CRACK, HALLUCINOGENS, INHALANTS, MARIJUANA, HEROIN/OPIUM, STEROIDS, STIMULANTS, AND TOBACCO.

Your grade will be based on:
  1. Your presentation (meeting or going beyond the standard) 
  2. Daily class grades
  3. Your research notes receive a grade
  4. Your test score.

We will spend two days in the computer lab researching from Internet sources, two days in the computer lab developing your power point lecture, and one day back in the classroom to work on visuals and any loose ends.

REQUIREMENTS

  1. Each of you will be required to pass in research notes on your topic. You will need to research the following information on your topic. 
    1. Background - history, plant type, medical uses, how the drug affects the brain.
    2. How the drug is used - smoked, chewed, injected, absorbed, inhaled, or oral.
    3. Street names and/or the different types.
    4. Physical problems - diseases it causes and/or other physical problems.
    5. Psychological/Emotional problems - paranoia, depression, etc.
    6. Signs of use- how can you tell if someone is using?
    7. Withdrawal symptoms - if someone stops using the drug, what happens physically?
    8. Other important facts and information.
    9. Bibliography.

  2. Power Point Presentation - Each group is required to pass in an outline view of their PPP.

  3. Visuals - Each group is required to present a visual on their topic. Speakers, posters, pamphlets, pictures imported from the web are examples that may be used.
