Over the last year, educators like you have risen to the occasion again and again, keeping kids healthy, safe and engaged. This year for Teacher Appreciation Week—just like in years past—we want to say two simple words:
Whether you are teaching in person, virtually, or in combination, you are inspiring your students to excel while keeping their social and emotional health and wellness top of mind. We appreciate the dedication and perseverance you show to your students and your community every day.
To celebrate, we are excited to share NEW tools with you to help your students say YES to a healthy lifestyle and NO to risky behaviors—including underage drinking and underage cannabis use. These activities will elevate the prevention education in your classroom – virtual or in person! – and make your students better informed about their developing brains and bodies. Check them out!
NEW Discovery Education Digital Exploration
- In this self-paced interactive module, students will investigate how cannabis affects the developing brain and separate myths from facts to make the decision to say NO to underage cannabis use.
NEW Vocabulary Worksheets for the Classroom
- These newest classroom activities feature the vocabulary words from each of our eight lesson plans in the form of word searches and word scrambles. These exercises help students understand new words and their meanings, and deepen their knowledge of what the brain does, what alcohol does to it, and what that does to them!
Ask, Listen, Learn on Share My Lesson!
- With digital education delivery on the forefront of many of your minds, we are proud to be featured on ShareMyLesson! This is just one more way to access our videos, lesson plans, and activities, and it makes integrating Ask, Listen, Learn into your class even easier.
As we wrap up the school year, we are excited about the conversations with your students that are yet to come. We hope these new resources make your prevention education lessons even more robust and help inspire kids to remain substance free and encourage their peers do the same.
From our team to you—THANK YOU, EDUCATORS!
