In Miss. Eley’s class we will be starting with Healthy Eating Habits and Tobacco Use starting at the beginning of May. The next two chapters that we will be discussing and going over is chapter three and four with alcohol and drug misuse. Put your listening ears and thinking caps on when you come to my class!
Chapter 3 covers content about alcohol, alcoholism, and the dangers associated with drinking. Students will learn how to avoid the use of alcohol, the dangers of driving under the influence, and the short and long-term effects of alcohol.
Chapter 4 collectively deals with drug misuse, addiction, and drug dynamics. Students will learn about and discuss the meaning of "addiction", the common drugs of abuse (according to the textbook), and the misuse of drugs within society.
