Health 11 Drug Project

For the Drug Project each group is expected to teach the class about a specific category of drugs. You may work in groups of 3 or 4.

Your group MUST submit the following:
  1. A lesson plan rough draft. This will be graded and returned with suggestions and comments.
  2. Final lesson plan (typed)
  3. 15-20 Questions and Answers Test to be submitted with your final lesson plan.
  4. Handouts you need to give the class may be given to me well in advance so I can make copies for the class.

Your project should cover and include the following:
  1. Types of drugs found in each category
  2. Short term and long term psychological and physical effects
  3. Withdrawal symptoms
  4. Street / slang names
  5. What forms do the drugs come in and how they are taken
  6. The history of one of the drugs in your category and the impact it has/does have on our society.
  7. Are there any medical uses for the drug? If so, what?
  8. Criminal charges for using, selling and possession
