Facilitator Note: The facilitator needs to be aware of the sensitive nature of the Family History Interview. The student does not need to complete this with an immediate family member. Depending on the student’s home life and what they may be going through, this type of discussion could be problematic. The most important thing is the awareness of the topic and that the student gets some information about their genetic family history. The facilitator should also use discretion when grading this portion of the assignment. It should be done on a case by case basis.
Students should be active participants in class discussion, turn in the Protective and Risk Factors Worksheet as well as the Family History Interview.
Grades 9-12 - Three class periods
Students should actively participate in all class discussions and be a contributing member within their break out groups completing the Prescription Drug Use/Abuse Scenarios worksheets. Students will turn in completed Prescription Drug Use/Abuse Scenario worksheet and the essay.
