This teacher-guided course uses Chromebooks, iPads or other devices to enable peer interaction, engage students, and facilitate live classroom learning about the complexities and negative effects of drug use and addiction. Each lesson begins with a short, compelling video.  Through device-enabled instruction, teachers then guide learners to share in dialog, research, investigation and assessment to promote understanding.  The course is easy to implement in 5 to 6 class periods.
