Introduction

A drug is any chemical taken into the body that alters the normal body processes. There are many different reasons why people take drugs, some good and some bad.

Alcohol is a drug classified as a depressant, meaning that it slows down vital functions—resulting in slurred speech, unsteady movement, disturbed perceptions and an inability to react quickly. Alcohol reduces a person’s ability to think rationally and distorts his or her judgment.

Task

You are a research expert hired by the Department of Health and Human Services to investigate the drugs available to teens today.  You will be assigned a particular drug to research. The Department of Health and Human Services would like to know the social, physical and, psychological implications of the drug on people. After researching the information, you will be required to make a fact-based presentation with a persuasive position as to why NOT to use this drug.

 

Process

1.    On your own, complete 5 notecards about your drug.

                                       iv.    The effect on the brain development

                                        v.    How many teens and tweens use it

                                       vi.    How to say no

b.    Each member of the group is responsible for a section of the storyboard.

c.    Each section of the storyboard must have:        

                                          i.    Pictures

                                        ii.    Words (typed or handwritten)
