ABSTRACT: This paper reports on content and teaching strategies in 10 drug abuse prevention curricula available to public and private schools. While similarities existed among the curricula, they employed a range of content as well as strategies. Interactive teaching strategies needed to implement the curricula include full class discussion, small group activities, brainstorm, and role play. Due to the complexity of the strategies, the curricula may not provide sufficient background information or training for teacher implementation in the classroom. 1993 American School Health Association
