Lessons cover topics including opioids, prescription drugs, and the effect of drugs on the brain. Links include access to teachers' guides, student handouts, and any additional required materials. In addition to the lessons, other links provide conversation starters for parents, classroom resources for teachers on the effects of drugs, and supporting information for National Drug and Alcohol Facts Week, commemorated annually in March.

tag(s): drugs and alcohol (27), mental health (29), red ribbon week (10)

In the Classroom

Use lessons provided by NIDA to supplement your current Red Ribbon Week teaching resources. Begin by engaging students in lessons using a resource such as IdeaBoardz, reviewed here, to identify students' knowledge of the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse. For example, create a chart with two sections - one for drugs and the other for alcohol, and ask students to share information about each. Enhance knowledge using Pear Deck, reviewed here, to create real-time, interactive formative assessments that offer the ability to create quizzes in various formats. Extend learning by asking students to become creators and share their learning through a choice of multimedia resources. Some examples include using Scratch, reviewed here, to create a game teaching about the effects of drug abuse or write an interactive story using inklewriter, reviewed here. inklewriter's easy-to-use features allow students to write a choose-your-own-adventure story and share the finished product using the URL created when published.

Social-emotional Learning (SEL) is the process by which students of all ages develop and use social and emotional skills, knowledge, and attitudes. Using SEL skills, students better understand emotion, manage their own, and show empathy towards others. SEL skills also help students set and achieve positive goals. Although this is an ongoing process through all grade levels, you can begin to instill these skills and understandings in even your youngest students. We encourage you to find appropriate tools and resources in this collection to use with your students and in your lessons.

This recording of an OK2Ask online professional learning session is from May 2020. You can register and immediately view the archive of the session.

The authentic nature of simulations can be highly motivating for even your hardest to reach students. When used properly, instructional simulations can empower student learning, helping students to set goals, seek feedback, and demonstrate what they have learned. Learn to choose simulations that model the relationships between concepts studied. In this session, we will discuss how to best use simulations in the classroom to increase student achievement, allow students to reflect on what they have learned, and transfer their knowledge to new problems and situations. As a result of this session, teachers will: 1. Understand the value of using simulations in the classroom; 2. Explore instructional simulations; and 3. Plan for the use of simulations in the instructional setting. This session is appropriate for teachers at all technology levels.

tag(s): professional development (306), simulations (2)

The archive of this teacher-friendly, hands-on webinar will empower and inspire you to use learning technology in the classroom and for professional productivity.

Here's a great idea for a healthy snack and a free printable for consumption while reading The Three Little Pigs or The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. The snack consists of the "building materials" that the three little pigs might use, and suggests that students should explore creating a building before eating them.

Use this cute idea as a follow-up after reading The Three Little Pigs or The True Story of the Three Little Pigs. Be sure to take pictures of the "structures" each student made (or a group of students made) to post on your web page. With older students, take this a step further and enhance learning by uploading the pictures (or have students learn to upload them) to a photo editing tool that creates talking animations from a photo or other image such as Blabberize, reviewed here, to explain their structure.

If you're teaching a butterfly unit or studying insects, this snack is a perfect addition to start identifying the body parts of a butterfly! Since students will be excited to help make their own "butterfly" snack, this snack idea easily converts to an activity; it will take some prep for items that need to be cut. (You might consider asking a parent to help prepare the items ahead of time). Be sure to explore this source for lots of new ideas!
