Middle School Curriculum

The Courage to Speak® Drug Prevention Education Program is a research-based program for Middle Schools which builds skills to help students make good decisions and resist the pressure to use drugs. Students take part in specific social emotional skill development and asset-building activities through internet research, creative writing, group discussion, scientific demonstration, and art. The Program consists of 17 highly interactive classroom lessons taught by teachers. This curriculum includes the new marijuana and vaping lesson plans and handouts. There is an option to use the Courage to Speak Presentation by Ginger Katz for Activity #1C, and this activity can be completed with a online video, DVD, virtual or live presentation by Ginger Katz. An additional option for the curriculum is the book Sunny’s Story: #1 on Google for Drug Prevention.
