SADD/ACE Lesson Plans
ACE and Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD) partnered to create an Inhalant Abuse Prevention Facilitators Guide and Lesson Plan. The guide prepares facilitators to discuss inhalant abuse with middle and high school students through interactive activities that inform the students on the statistics, dangers, and warning signs of inhalant abuse.
The guide features sections that help develop facilitation skills, so leaders are informed and comfortable when speaking with students on the topic. The guide is especially useful for high school students in local SADD chapters who work with and speak to middle school students about inhalants. However, anyone who wants to help increase awareness about inhalant abuse and prevention should find the guide easy-to-use. The best prevention method is education. Through this guide, ACE informs students about the dangers of inhalant abuse by helping them compare their current awareness and knowledge of inhalant abuse to actual facts and statistics. Students are also given the chance to ask questions, interact with peers, and practice saying “no” to inhalants.
Inhalant Abuse Prevention Kit
The kit is intended for presentations to adult audiences, specifically parents of elementary and middle school children, so they can talk to their children about the dangers and risks associated with inhalants. We base the program on data from the Partnership for a Drug-Free America. Statistics show that parents talking to their kids about drugs decrease the risk of the kids trying a drug.
Please note: We are currently working on updating this Prevention Kit with a new design and materials. We will are preparing to have the kits ready by Red Ribbon Week, October 21-31, 2018. Pre-order your kit today!
The Inhalant Abuse Prevention Kit contains four components:
- Facilitator’s Guide
- USB with:
- Interactive PowerPoint Presentation
- Classroom activities
Additionally, there are four printable posters for classroom use and presentations.
