Students have embarked on a new project in which are studying the effects of illegal drugs, alcohol, or tobacco on the body and on society as a whole. By the end of the unit, students will be able to identify many of the most common drugs, their physical impact on the body, as well as their impact on the community. I will be sending out the rubric for the project via e-mail in case you would like to discuss some of the content with your child. In addition to the content knowledge, my intention of delving deep into the effects of drugs is to have this lesson serve as a deterent so students will not be tempted to abuse these substances.
As usual, if you have any questions or concerns about the subject matter or the delivery of the content, please feel free to contact me via e-mail or meet with me after school. I am working with students Wednesday through Friday after school, but I am still accessible.
